My daughter got a touch of pink nail polish on our brand new black leather couch. How can I get it out?

Nail Polish on Leather Furniture: Hairspray is the safest approach

I tried the most non-invasive approach as possible to remove blue nail polish from a brand new dark brown leather sectional. I was worried that using the acetone might eat the finish and dull the color of couch. So I used the hairspray. I used a cotton cloth and sprayed the aerosol hairspray on it and gently dabbed the surface. I then used leather cleaner on the sofa and no problems showed up. Now note the nail polish was fully dried turquoise blue from my child's toes. Noticed this next day. Works like a charm. I did so and no damage to finish or color lighting issues. Note, make sure to dab gently.

Good luck and I hope this helps. (09/19/2010)

Does anyone know of a way to get nail polish off of leather furniture? My son dumped a whole bottle on the couch.

You may be screwed. I would try wetting the area around the spot with "Neatsfoot" oil, a leather preservative. The idea would be to apply until the leather under the spot became saturated, hopefully destroying the bond and allowing you to carefully pick the dried nail polish off. You may be able to find matching leather dye to touch-up. (05/15/2009)

Get the polish and paint a new coat on the stain (dried up polish) and wipe off the coat (you applied over the stain) before it dries, gently. (01/30/2009)

My daughter had got nail varnish on my black leather chair, put a little hairspray on a cloth rub gently and its gone. It didn't damage my furniture in any way. The furniture was a little sticky afterwards but I used a little leather cleaner and its now fine. (03/28/2008)

Dab a little bit of nail polish remover. But make sure not to rub otherwise the leather will come off. Hope this helps! (04/04/2008)

I've just spilled clear nail varnish over my boyfriends mothers leather sofa. My instant reaction was to wipe it, which took the color off and has left a smeary white mark. The sofa is pale green so it's not too obvious but she has eyes like a hawk.

Does anyone have anything that could help? Other than for me to leave the country?

I tried 100% acetone and it will take off the polish, but it left my black leather ottoman looking dull. So it is noticeable, but better than bright pink nail polish. Also I tried rubbing alcohol first and that was almost worse taking off the black. (01/21/2008)
