Fab Find: Up & Up Dispenser Pump

I’ve always been interested in getting the Zoya Remove+ Pump dispenser, because it seems to be really convenient and popular, but I’ve never actually been able to make myself pony up the money for it. Luckily, there is a solution available at Target stores – I can’t believe it took me so long to find it!

I needed to pick up some non-acetone remover, and Target’s Up & Up brand is my favorite (why don’t you carry the big bottles anymore Target!?) – I happened to spot a little, empty dispenser down on the shelf near the polish removers.

It’s possible that I have just overlooked it in the past because of how overly-lit the cosmetic section is. Maybe it blended in. Maybe everyone else knew about these little gems and they were never in stock. Who knows. I saw it and grabbed it immediately!

The snapping lid flips up to reveal a small inverted cup that you can press down to pump the remover.

I filled mine with the pink Up & Up non-acetone remover. It holds 6 oz (117mL) which, conveniently, is how much is in one of the small polish remover bottles.

The pump worked well for me right off the bat and I got a perfect amount of polish remover on my cotton round. Pumping can be done one-handed (hur hur!) as opposed to tipping a bottle of chemicals over a cotton you are holding in your other hand.

I don’t know about you, but I am totally guilty of remover tsunamis at my polishing station and this completely solves that problem by being spill-proof! I’m pretty sure I need another one of these for my acetone remover as well!

Can you believe this gets better? The price is right, Bob! The empty pump bottle retails for $2.49! You can get it in store or on their website!

It’s a bit silly, but I feel like everyone who polishes their nails needs one of these. Luckily I work on an IKEA surface that seems mostly impervious to the damaging qualities of acetone and non-acetone remover, but I’ve seen or read about spills that damage tables and desks. This little bottle takes away that risk, which could save people from a costly repair to re-surface a table or desk. Totally worth my pennies and highly recommended!

This is perfect! I need a good pump for my straight acetone, I know if I put it in a Zoya pump I would confuse them all the time. And those $1 pump bottles from China are a nightmare. :/

Does this one lock? The main reason I like the one from Zoya is that you can twist it and it locks. However it also gets a little stuck so I go to push on it and it ends up shooting acetone at the ceiling or anything else close-by, not good!!

I don’t have a Target (yet) but I found acetone in a little pump like this one at Walgreens. It was pretty cheap. It’s very convenient.

What a great pump!! I use the Remover+ in the pump, but never even considered getting pump for my Beauty Secrets acetone. Highly considering it now.

I have like 3 menda pumps. They are awesome! These with the cup are a but stiff for me to push down with my clean up brush, so I use the kind without the cup.

I definitely need something like this because I am always spilling my acetone over. I seriously waste more by spilling then I do by using it on my nails.

I recently saw these at my Target as well! I agree, if you like to polish your nails, you need one of these. It’s just so much more convenient. I use the Remove +, but if I didn’t I would definitely get one of these.

Okay so I totally snorted like a 12 year old at your pump joke. I need to get one for myself because I’m guilty of being sloppy with acetone like WHOA!
