Here are a few ideas that may do the trick. The first is to try a product called "goof off". It comes in aerosol and liquid formula. I have found the liquid to work better and be easier to control. I would suggest trying in an inconspicuous area first to make sure it won't discolor the floor.
Another idea is to perhaps use a hairdryer to heat up the polish and then an old credit card to scrape the polish up as it softens.
If you use nail polish remover just make sure it's non-acetone.

How can I remove dried pink nail polish from a hard wood floor? I don't want to damage my floor, but need to remove a dried fingernail polish patch about the size of an adult hand.
