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.

Meh

Very pretty emery board, but not very sturdy. This thing started to crease and fall apart after just a couple of uses. I can't justify paying extra for something that's pretty much disposable.

awesome

This was a very great nail file it has lasted a very long time and even the plastic wrapper on it has lasted and help me keep the file in good condition would definitely recommend this.

Meh

So I got this in one of my birchboxes and was super excited because I needed a new emery board. Within a few days of using this the board started to peel apart. Personally I don't think this is worth spending $5.

super cute!

I was excited to see this in my Birchbox! It's not something I would normally splurge on, but I do keep an emory board in my desk at work all the time. This one is cute but sturdy and I'm glad to have it!

Not long lasting

I received this nail file in one of my first Birchboxes and I wasn't impressed. After one normal shaping of my nails the emery board was so dull that I couldn't really use it again...this emery board isn't very strong and doesn't last long at all. It's definitely not worth the $5!

Cute, but...

Nothing really special. It worked just like any other emery board I've tried, except it was definitely cuter than most that I've owned.

Pretty Primping Tool

The grit of this emery board wore away a little more quickly than I'd have liked it to because it's just so pretty!!

Great pattern!

Several months later and I am STILL using this emory. Others feel it is flimsy, but I am pretty easy-going on my files so they tend to last a long time! The pattern on this is pretty and pairs well with my purse!

fun & handy

I enjoyed this emery board. It does wear quickly but it was reasonably priced and the little sleeve it goes in made it easy to store in a purse or clutch. Cute design, got lots of compliments.
