I work far from home and am always seeming to break a nail somewhere between work and home and spend more time looking for what I need to fix it. This set helps me do just that. It has plenty of tools that I could even cut my cuticles when on break if I decided to (I sit in my car so no one but me would see it). I like having a file with me to help with those nasty chips that happen now and then or those little thin pieces that like to come off and snag on everything in site. Overall, this little set is handy to have around even at home for when doing the big job like cutting toenails. This set did get the job done when I brought it inside to test it out.
