Madewell for Birchbox Nail Emery Board

We generally frown upon PDG (public displays of grooming) but this floral-patterned mini-file is so charming, we’re tempted to make an exception. Inspired by Madewell’s new spring collection, which features sun-ready prints and patterns like this one, the emery board is as practical as it is pretty. The double-sided nail care essential is perfect for daily maintenance and as a quick fix for snags or breaks.

Pretty standard

This is a good emery board in an adorable print, but at the end of the day its just an emery board. :)

love it

i loved the buffer side of the emery. i usually have to carry around two different types of file...a rougher one and a buffer to smooth it all out. this is both!

WHY

Why would an emery board even make the box? I'm not willing to overpay 4 dollars for an emery board just because it has flowers on it. On top of that the board was peeling from the edges of the hard backing as soon as I took it out of the plastic encasement.

Does the job

It's a cute emery board. If you want something that's pretty, you can get this. If you just want something for its functionality, you can definitely find cheaper options at other stores.

Not a very good file

This file is pretty for sure and I really like the plastic sleeve it came in. But that's about it. Its one of those shiny plastic surfaces, that don't really file all that well. Also its the same texture on both sides instead of a coarse side/fine side.

It gets the job done.

Nothing exceptional about it. The pattern is cute, but not very fashionable. I wish they thought of that. But it will get the job done!

cute

I love this. Its so cute and pretty I almost didn't want to use it, but i just used the plain side. Works great and looks cute along side my nail polishes.

McNice

It's too cute to use! Ok, I've used it, but only on the blank side! :) Works as well as any emery board I've owned in the past.

Cute

Super cute. I don't mind pulling this out in public to reshape my broken nail.

Pretty, but nothing spectacular.

I'm not a huge fan of nail files personally. This is pretty nail file and does the job though I guess.
