    Try using a non acetone nail polish remover as not to harm the countertop.

    Rubbing alcohol will help get it off!!

    Yes rubbing non acetone nail polish remover will work. Use a Q tip. gently rub over it. It came out of my leather couch.

    Possibly ice cubes to it for a few minutes then use a utility razor blade it may pop right. But non acetone nail polish remover puddle some on the nail polish and let it sit a few minutes then use the razor blade to scrape it up.

      I tried WD-40 on my bathroom countertop and it didn't work. Any other ideas? It really bugs me!

    This post made me wonder what it would look like if you just kept going; spill more over the entire counter top and top coat with polyurethane -could look amazing or, I could be coo-coo ;)

    For my shower I use window washer, that you use for your car,just spray on than rinse w/your shoer head.Works great.

    So I used the WD-40, let it sit for a while and then used a razor blade on it. It did leave marks but it still looks better than the finger nail polish. Thank you for your help.

  • A little nail polish remover should take it off.

    If you can apply something to make it cold and then attempt to use something to pry it up this might be the least destructive method.
