I won't see till tomorrow, hope it had not etched the finish. Think table had a glossy polyurethane coating.

Do what Todd said and do in stages as not to go below the surface..nail polish wont etch anything to my knowledge. Above all..Sign off liability..you don't wanna end up refinishing the table.

Q-tip dipped in nail polish remover and slowly remove it. You might take a small can of varnish with you for touch up if needed. Tell the customer up front of the risk and that if the finish does come up that you will apply some varnish to the spot. If they want to refinish the whole table top they can pay you for that too as an additional charge & service. Should be fairly easy, you don't have to remove all the finish. Just a light sanding of the existing finish with a fine grit then recoat the whole top.

Easier said than done (refinishing) I'd have that stuff slopped everywhere.

I'd wreck it no matter where I did it..Never had a knack for those things. Thing would have more Drips than a leaky faucet.
Lol light coats and time buddy. Buffing in between coats. Will look like glass.



Think I would attempt to remove the bulk of it carefully with very fine sand paper. If carful can lightly buff it with steel wool and mirofiber towel or reapply poly to touch up. But once you apply acetone or same nail polish remover. It may continue to melt in. Making surface gummy and spreading the polish. Test in hidden area on one of the legs or something. Only good thing acetone evaporates fast unlike other thinners. So might work. But ide try and get as much of the polish off first.

Mmmmmm cake. Now I'm hungry. What's my chances that the kids didn't find my tasty cake hidden in vegetable drawer in the fridge? I bet it's long gone lol. They sniff that stuff out.
