My 2 year old dumped 6 different colors of her older sister's fingernail polish on the carpet. By the time I "discovered" it, it had already dried. Anyone have any tips on how to get nail polish out of carpet before I just rip out the carpet with my teeth? Lol HELP!

I would try Sol-u-Mel. My daughter put lipstick on my friend's living room carpet (oops!) and sol-u-mel took it out! I would try it on nail polish if I needed to. Good luck with all these ideas! Will you let us know what worked?

try rubbing alcohol to get nail polish out of carpet. It got dried red paint out of our beige carpet before. It also did nail polish, but I think it was still wet. It also takes out fresh koolaid spills too. Smells bad, but works great!

Try "Oops!". You can buy it at Walmart. I removed furniture stain from cream colored carpet with it! Give it a try, it certainly can't hurt :D

omg, I'm so sorry for you, but kind of glad not to be alone. My son did that to me about 18 months ago, on a white carpet at that and I tried it all, nothing works! brush and soaps just broke it up, it still stayed incrusted in the fibers. nail polish remover did lighten it, but it also made the stain spread out and it still showed. I hope you have better luck then I did getting nail polish out of carpet, I threw mine out in the end.

If you know anyone in Melaleuca, ask them to let you borrow their Sol-u-mel. That will definitely do it for you. It will take out paint, nail polish, permanent marker and also if any of your kids get gum in their hair or on the carpet it will take that out too. It is really liquid gold! Also it doesn't have any toxic fumes and no toxic chemicals in it so you don't have to worry about kids getting into it because it isn't poisonous. If you don't know anyone who has it then I will be happy to help you order it if you live in the US or Canada or if you don't then I can get you their number and they will put you in touch with someone who can help you also. My number is: 608-524-3441 and my email is: kakjmk@yahoo.com (just put Sol-u-Mel in the subject line)
