Tip #1: If the stain isn’t huge you could do this: cut away the polished fibers with scissors, when you have the nail polish cut away, find a spot in an area where no one will notice fibers missing, like a corner under furniture–cut those clean fibers out and glue them in to where the mistake happened. Use a strong glue made for fabric or super glue.

Tip #2: Try powdered oxyclean sprayed with Shout or another spray stain remover. Good luck!!!

Tip #3: I’ve used plain ole nail polish remover on a same type stain on our rug I figured at this point what difference does it make. The acetone did seem to bring out the pink. I need to do again found a new spot. Hope it works for you. Good luck.
