All Your Dip-It are Belong to Us

There is no worse feeling than when one of your favorite products is discontinued at a store…or even worse, discontinued by the manufacturer. It may been a product that you’ve been using forever or one you’ve just fallen in love with. It’s like your guts have been ripped out and stomped on.

I’m suspicious that Target is the latest retailer to rip my guts out – I’ve had a really hard time finding my beloved up & up Nail Polish Remover Dip-It. In fact, I haven’t been able to find it on the shelves at the last 3 Targets I’ve been to…last Friday, there happened to be a Beauty Consultant wandering around when I was looking and I asked her…she said she hasn’t seen them in a while and she thinks they don’t carry them anymore. No. NO. NO!

I started to freak out a little bit. They didn’t even have any of the Sally Hansen version, which suck anyway, because the soft sponge doesn’t take off glitter like the plastic nubbies in the Target version. But as I sat at my desk back at work, I had an idea…I looked online and there it was on Target’s website! Of course, they wouldn’t ship it to me – too flammable – but they would let me order online and pick up in-store. It doesn’t make a lick of sense that I was able to order 3 of them from the Target nearest my house, when I couldn’t find them there just 2 Saturdays before…but the order went through and I picked them up this past Saturday.

Relief! Now to stalk the rest of the Targets in my area to build up a hoard…
