Although there are several ways to remove nail polish from a carpet, the easiest method is to blot up excess polish and then use a non-acetone fingernail polish remover. You need clean cloths, paper towels, a non-acetone fingernail polish remover, water and detergent. The process takes under 30 minutes.
- Blot up excess nail polish
Use a paper towel to blot up any excess nail polish in the carpet.
- Rub with fingernail polish remover
Apply a small amount of fingernail polish remover to a cloth. Rub the spot with the cloth until the nail polish lifts. Don't smear the polish onto adjacent areas.

Using a clean cloth dipped in soapy water, rub the area until the stain is gone. Rinse and dry the carpet.
