Thankfully it is clear nail vanish but about half a pot has slowly, in one spot, seeped into the carpet. I have tried nail varnish remover but the area is very hard and crusty feeling and a dark mark on a light carpet. Any ideas??

Ask for this to be moved into The Housekeeping section

A razor?! There isn't anything to shave off? The carpet is a cheap polyester thin type carpet?

Hi folks. We're going to move this over to our Housekeeping topic now.

Soak some kitchen paper in nail varnish remover and lay it over the spot. Leave it for 10 minutes. Blot with more kitchen paper, to remove the smell. Repeat, until the surface is clean/smooth enough that it's not visible. It will be better, if not perfect. Be grateful it wasn't blood red!

I'm very greatful it's not coloured! Iv already tried nail varnish remover that has helped but it is still there. I live in rented otherwise I wouldn't be too worried but it would be noticable when the room is empty?

Use pure acetone, problem with nail varnish remover is that it often has oils in it. Just keep dabbing with clean kitchen towel and it should come out.

I would try THIS it is amazing stuff, one of the dc got chewing gum on my carpet and I tried everything for over a year to remove it and nothing worked. I got some of this and it literally wiped off.

Acetone is your best option for getting the nail varnish out.
