Shizuka New York is a day spa run by husband-and-wife duo Shizuka Bernstein (esthetician) and Dr. Robert M. Bernstein (dermatologist). Their latest innovation is LED gel manicures. The process uses LEDs instead of UVs, which makes it an all-around healthier and faster process.

To boot, Shizuka New York will happily fix your manicure or pedicure if your nails chip or lift within ten days of your visit to the spa.

Implications - So, for all the women who get their nails done and often end up with one chipped nail that ruins the rest, Shizuka New York is the manicure company for you. Even if you're not one of those women, Shizuka New York may be worth using, if only to experience a piece of ridiculous, futuristic technology.
