I had some almost black polish spilled (thanks to some teens, lol) on my light beige carpet.

Be careful with fingernail polish remover on carpet. It can delaminate the carpet (separate the backing from teh carpet) which ruins it - and it will not be able to be repaired without being patched with extra carept you may have!

my two year old spilled a WHOLE bottle of bright red on my light beige carpet, by the time it spread out it was about the size of a soft ball!!! but, it ALL came out and you can't even tell now!
lots of water, alcohol, more water, some polish remover, more water and most important BLOT don't rub. good luck!
