This week on Warehouse Hunts we’re looking at an essential, and often neglected, product for your general health and hygiene routine: a quality manicure kit.

Now, the term “manicure” is a turn-off to a lot of people, especially men, who might find the association of the word overly effeminate or self-absorbed sounding.

That view is understandable, of course, but it fails to recognize the benefits of a complete and quality set of nail care tools.

First off, your manicure kit doesn’t have to be extensive, complete with buffers and a bunch of pronged, torture cell-type devices. It can be simple and practical like this Dovo three-piece kit, which contains only the most essential tools: a pair of nail scissor, tweezers, and a file.


The Swiss-made Rubis offers another minimalist option. I was especially impressed by the brand’s quality materials and solid construction.


From there you can expand to even more specialized kits like this Wusthof four-piece case, which adds a cuticle pusher, or full sets from Dovo and WÜSTHOF and other brands, which include things like nose and ear hair trimmers and heavy-duty toenail clippers.

No matter what route you decide to take, the bottom line is that proper nail care can benefit both your personal appearance and overall health, and quality sets from respected brands like this can help you do that.
