I got this from the Thrifty Fun Archives:

Warm up your iron on max (no steam just the dry iron).

Put a clean, white wash cloth on top of the stain.

After the iron is hot, work circular motion moves with the iron on top of the stain for about 1 min.

Remove the wash cloth to check your progress.

Keep doing that over and over until the stain is gone.

Here is an explanation of why it works: the heat of the iron dilates the wood grain, and also evaporates the nail polish which is very volatile.

Don't let the iron sit on top of the wood for too long, it will damage the wood grain and burn your table.

If it was the polish remover, it probably has removed the sealant and possibly part of the varnish off the table. You may have to sand it some and restain and varnish.
