A bomb is just a bomb, be it a package, or similar.
A person wearing a vest full of plastique, nails, and other shrapnel materials, who chooses to kill himself/herself in order to spread their terror-message? That's frightening to most, hell, it's frightening to me...more so than a pipe bomb is. IMHO, of course.
I did not know that nail bombs were that common among suicide bombers.
The way the most basic nail bombs are made use pressure cookers or pipes. Bulky and meant to be dropped and walked away from.

Why is the UK being hit lately??? Is there something recent going on there that would make them the target for any special reason????
