    Try,non acetone nail polish remover not as strong as pure acetone... should be fine. Rub with micro fiber towel at same time till it's removed. I've owned many hard wood floors and a company where we installed wood, I now own a cleaning company

    If you use a solvent that disolves nail polish it will disolve the finish on the floor too. Not much can stand up to such chemistry. If it is just the residue of a spill try sanding the polish away very gently. You may have to stop before all of the polish is removed. Just aim to get it to a point where you can live with the spill.

    I recommend soaking a cloth with rubbing alcohol. Set it on the nail polish and begin to gently rub. After a few minutes you will see the nail polish come right off.

    if any of these non evasive tips help! You can take steal wool fine grit with Watco clear or natural oil and saturate the steel wool in the oil and rubbed the spot where your finger nail polish is till the steel wool takes off the fingernail polish. Just keep the steel wool plenty saturated with oil and it will help from scratching your floor. Once you got off the polish just wipe the Watco oil off with a dry rag as much as you can and let dry! This also works well for scratches in your finish or other imperfections. I use Watco oil to cover up minor scratches or to remove marks from cabinets and flooring all the time! BTW, always rub with the grain back and forth! Also when your done don’t wad up rags and throw away, need to lay out all rags soaked in oil flat on the ground somewhere away from burnable materials. Otherwise if wadded up it can spontaneously cumbust and start fires! This is true for most any kind of finish! So be careful!

    Try a tiny bit of pure acetone on a q-tip. Just dab a little bit at a time, and keep using a new one each time. If that doesn't work, try a heat gun or blow dryer and gently scrape with a plastic spatula.
