    Maybe Citristrip will work?

    what about soaking it in hot water and using your thumbnail first. Then, try gently using a plastic scrungie to see if it will come off -.

    Try Nail Polish Remover (with Acetone). It should do the trick, then wash with soap and water to remove the acetone residue.

      @Jenni M It shouldn't harm the glass at all, and depending on the type of paint, the acetone should remove it quite easily. Make sure to swap out your cotton balls frequently to keep from spreading the paint back on :)

    thanks @jennifer g. the acetone nail polish remover is working great! it's probably gonna take a couple bottles, but i'll get there!
