I chose this partly because the set comes in a (unisex) brown alligator-skin-style case and I am a guy - I didn't want to be carrying around a pink purse around with me everywhere!
All pieces function well except the scissors, which are a little blunt for my liking. The scissors appear to be cut from brushed stainless steel and I think if they were polished stainless steel then they would cut better / more smoothly. But they can be easily replaced, whereas I was having trouble finding some of the other pieces (e.g.) cuticle trimmers in local pharmacies, and so it was worthwhile purchasing a full set as this now caters for all my nailcare needs.
One thing to note however is that the seller, at the time I purchased, was selling a very very similar item (a 10 piece set - so only 2 items less) at £4 cheaper. In hindsight, that probably would've have been sufficient too but I paid the extra for the more extensive kit.
