Acetone?

depends where it is. If its on plastic, use ABS cleaner.

Also heat can do wonders.

chip it off?

unless... you want to take it to the 'Drags' :)

I believe you can get acetone-fee nail polish remover.

Acetone WILL melt the plastic.

im really curious as to what people are doing painting there nails in/or around there cars????

and the same with removing there nail polish.. unless there one of these bimbo's that does all this stuff while driving.

Yes you can get so called acetone free nail polish remover but still be aware its still harsh chemicals in there that need to remove paint like substences so if its on paint or plastic i wouldnt recommend it.
