Birchbox

Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How to Use

File in short, quick strokes, starting from the sides and working toward the center of the nail. Avoid sawing back and forth, which can weaken tips and lead to two nail nightmares: breakage and splitting.

Cute but...

Very cute, but it fell apart after a few uses. I got it in a Birchbox so I'm glad I didn't pay for it.

I like it!

I thought it was really cute, and I liked that it came with a cover. This isn't anything special but the floral made it really cute. I would recommend!

Cheaply made, ruined after first use
Purchased

I was excited when i ordered this emery board because how pretty the floral pattern looks. But please be aware that this pretty pattern is printed on a piece of paper-like emery board. The sand paper actually peels off of the spongy middle piece. Not only that, when i first used it, i scratched off the rough sandy part of the paper exposing the white paper underneath. I wish i could post picture because i don't explain this very well. So all i have left now after first use is half peeled emery board with scratched parts that are not useful anymore because it loses the sandy part of it.

Not the best

Very cute print but unfortunately the board fell apart very quickly. Hardly got any use out of it and was disappointed.

Very Cute - Does the Job
Sampled

I like this nail file very much. It doesn't fall apart or wear as fast as other emery boards. Plus, it's very cute. I would definitely buy this again. The only downside is that it is very large and hard to carry around for nail emergencies.

Pretty File!
Purchased

The file is gorgeous and comes in a handy pouch. However, after a single use or two the paper began to come off and it stopped filing.

Great nail file, such a pretty design. I might pick up a few more of these to include with teacher gifts for the end of the year.
