The 2 sets I received had manicure tools which were rusting and staining the case...
on 28 July 2014
I purchased this same set elsewhere (not on Amazon) and was sent out one set, and it had rust marks inside the case which could not be washed off. I was sent a replacement set and it too was in the same poor condition. The manicure tools in both sets were corroding, as they are not stainless steel. But you do not expect good quality tools in such a low priced item (a good pair of stainless steel nail scissors would probably cost you more than this in a supermarket). But what you do expect is for the tools to be not corroding when first received. I only brought this set as I liked the sweet little case. I was planning to put my own good quality manicure tools in it, but my plans were scuppered by the irremovable rust marks.
As I said I purchased this same set elsewhere, but it had the exact same manicure tools in. The set stocked by this trader might not be in the same poor condition. It is a lovely, quiet good quality case for the price and a compact size which would fit nicely in a handbag. So if you plan to buy this for the case alone to put your own tools in, then it might be worth checking with the trader to see if the tools are okay (not rusting and staining the case).
As other reviewers have stated, the tools are very low quality. The tools themselves in the set are not items being sold at a bargain price. Instead I would say the old maxim "you get what you pay for" holds very true with regards to the tools. I found the scissors did not work (they chewed and shredded nails rather than cut) and the tweezers did not grasp eyebrows hairs. But as I said I was not surprised considering the price. If your buying this set to obtain a decent set of manicure tools your going to be sorely disappointed. Ultimately a few months down the line your going to toss these in the bin, and look elsewhere...
