Which Is The Best Manicure Set For Men?

Getting a complete manicure set is usually better than buying individual tools. A manicure set conveniently includes all the tools you need for manicure, pedicure, and even facial cares. You’ll find tools you didn’t even think you needed.

A good manicure set should have a wide selection of high quality grooming tools, preferably stainless steel. It should also come in a compact case that you can easily travel with.

In this buying guide, we review the best manicure sets for men in the UK, and give you tips on how to choose the best one for your grooming needs.

What To Look For In A Manicure Set For Men

Number of Tools

Check how many different tools are included in the kit. A kit with more tools is usually a better value for money and allows you to groom your hands, feet and face without having to buy many different tools.

The smallest manicure kits can have as few as 5 pieces while the largest ones can have 18 or more tools including scissors, tweezers, nail clippers, a file and more.

If you want a set that’s just for manicure, a smaller and cheaper kit will do. If you’d like a kit that also includes feet and facial care tools, go for a bigger one.


How many kinds of grooming can you do with the set? At the very least, a good manicure set should have tools for hand and foot care. It should come with a selection of manicure and pedicure tools.

Some kits even come with facial care tools such as nose trimming scissors and an ear spoon.

It all depends on your grooming needs. For example, if you have acne, there are kits that include an acne needle.


Don’t get one of those cheap sets, no matter how many tools they have. Often, they are cheap because they contain low quality and flimsy tools that break in no time.

Instead, pay a little more for a premium set that contains high quality tools that are sharp, durable, and easy to use.

The best quality sets come with stainless steel tools. Not only do these retain their sharpness for years, they are also resistant to corrosion.

Travel case

Finally, check the case the tools come in. Because you’ll likely be carrying the manicure set on your travels, get one that comes with a stylish and compact case.

Leather and faux leather travel cases are our most favourite. They look good and don’t get worn out quickly.

1. 3 Swords 10 piece Manicure and Pedicure Set

This German-made manicure set is one of the best quality ones in the market. Everything from the synthetic leather casing to the tools is well made and designed to last.

Let’s start with the case. It’s stylish, manly, and you can get it in four different colours. It’s small enough to put in your pocket or stuff into a travel bag.

The case holds 10 pieces of grooming tools, each with its own slot.

For your hands and feet, there’s a pair of nail scissors, a nail file, a fingernail clipper, a toenail clipper, a pair of tweezers, and a cleaner/pusher tool.

2. Cbei Profession Nail Clippers Set, 18 pcs

The Cbei manicure and pedicure set is the best value kit we found. It has more tools than most other sets, and it’s affordably priced.

The 18 pieces inside the case are divided into three categories: hand care, foot case and facial care.

The pieces include tweezers, three types of nail clippers, scissors, eyebrow trimmers and others.

All the pieces are stainless steel and come in a unique all-black finish. We particularly love the design of the nail clippers with their easy to use non-slip handle and curved sharp blades.

The synthetic leather case also has a black finish on the outside. It’s a bit bigger than other manicure cases, but that’s because it contains more tools. But it’ll still fit easily in any travel bag.

What we like about it:

  • Lots of pieces for hand, foot and facial case.
  • High quality stainless steel tools.
  • Nice looking travel case.

3. Leipple Manicure Set, 16 pcs

The case opens flat to reveal all the 16 pieces set in individual nooks. They include three nail clippers, a nail file, two pairs of scissors, pedicure knives, a dead skin fork and more. Basically, all the stuff you only find at a spa.

The set also comes with several facial care tools including nose hair scissors, eyebrow tweezers, an acne bowl, an acne needle, and an ear spoon.

All the tools are made with stainless steel. This keeps them corrosion-free and maintains the sharpness of the scissors and clippers through years of use.

What we like about it:

  • Versatile set.
  • Stainless steel pieces.
  • Stylish case.

4. Uliya Manicure Set, 12 pcs

If you want an extra-compact manicure kit, we recommend the Uliya 12-piece set. The case is small enough to carry in your pocket, but it contains a wide assortment of tools to take care of your hands, feet and face.

The kit includes all the usual stuff such as clippers (separate ones for toenails and fingernails), scissors, tweezers, and an acne bowl.

The tools are made from high quality carbon steel. Each tool has a rubber comfort grip to make them easier to hold and use even when your hands are wet.

There are also tweezers, a small pair of scissors you can use to trim nose hair or eyebrows, an exfoliating tool, and an acne needle.

All the tools are stainless steel, so you can be sure they’ll last a long time without rusting or losing their sharpness.

The 15 pieces fit in a surprisingly small case, making it easy to carry the set with you when travelling. The synthetic leather case has a brown and black finish.
