Nagomi Manicure NYC

nagomi manicure and sakura pedicure

Characters in the Japanese written language can carry multiple meanings. “Nagomi” means wholeness, calm, relaxation, and Japanese. “Sakura” r efers to the beautiful cherry blossom that blooms in the spring throughout Japan. These pink flowers also abound in our nation’s capital, a gift to the citizens of Washington DC from the mayor of Tokyo in 1912. Together, the Nagomi Manicure and the Sakura Pedicure form Shizuka NYC Day Spa ‘s exclusive nail spa menu.

Nagomi Manicure and Sakura Pedicure (1 hour, 45 minutes) $65

Sakura Pedicure NYC

Nagomi Manicure (45 minutes) $30
This uniquely Japanese manicure begins with a rice and lemon finger bath followed by detailed nail and cuticle care. Watch as your nail technician applies a customized Exfoliating Hand Scrub and a Sake-Kasu Skin Care Pack. These products are both “handmade” and “made for the hands” as they hydrate and supply vitamins, proteins, and minerals while softening and brightening. The manicure is complete with light massage and your choice of color or a simple buffing. For those in a rush, the Nagomi Manicure can be performed in your treatment room during any facial or eyelash perm.


Sakura Pedicure (1 hour) $50
Our original Sakura Pedicure begins with a warm Sakura-scented foot bath. An exfoliating Black Sesame Foot Scrub is followed by a moisturizing Sake-Kasu Foot Pack that also helps with perspiration problems. Light massage is applied to improve circulation in your tired feet, and with the perfect color (optional) you will definitely want to take out your favorite open-toed shoes or maybe just walk around barefoot.

the unique ingredients of the nagomi manicure and sakura pedicure, and their benefits

The products used in Shizuka NYC Nail Spa’s Nagomi Manicure and Sakura Pedicure are handmade and all-natural. Even the fragrant Yuzu Orange Massage Cream used in all Wazakura services is homemade!


Black Sesame Foot Scrub

Black Sesame seeds, while delicious on their own, prove to be highly effective exfoliating agents when ground and mixed with ingredients such as Rice Bran and even Olive Oil!


Exfoliating Hand Scrub

A blend of Rice Bran and Soy Powder mixed with soy milk and other ingredients gently exfoliates your hands. The ingredients naturally moisturize and lighten the skin.


Sake-Kasu Skin Care Pack for Hands and Feet 

Sake-Kasu, a byproduct of the famed Japanese rice wine, has powerful effects for moisturizing and brightening the skin while relieving perspiration. Combined with Vitamin E, it gently nourishes the skin of the hands and feet.


Yuzu Orange Massage Cream

Divinely scented with essential oils of the Yuzu Orange, this massage cream includes organic oils, Coco-Palm wax and Grapefruit Seed Extract, as a natural preservative. This delightful cream is the perfect ending to any Wazakura service.
