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)

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)
