Nail Polish Spilled on Car

In a crazy chain of events, nail polish was spilled on my 2014 Mazda3 this weekend. Now there are white streaks in the black section between front and back windows on the drivers side. Does anyone have a suggestion for fixing this? Or should I just take it to a paint shop and be done with it?

You could try claybar to remove it. I've gotten road paint off of cars with it.

Seen this shit too many times. Acetone works as long as you dont leave a puddle on your clear coat or touch plastic with it. It hazes the clear coat a little bit. Easily remedied by 2000 grit wet sanding with soapy water vary lightly being sure to stay flat tp all contours. Then finish up with a buffer and some buffing compound. Wash wax and back to life.

Worked for me. Should work for you, too!
