RIP OPI Catch Me In Your Net.....You will be missed!!

My yellow lab Max's giant otter tail knocked over a basket I had with some OPI's in it.

One Brave Soldier didn't make it out....Catch Me In Your Net.

The carpet now contains more than the bottle :(


Any one know:

1. Tips for getting nail polish out of carpet?
2. Places that sell empty bottles/ how can I clean out a bottle to put the rest in?


I WAS wearing ds coronation today, until the "incident" occured and of course it was ruined in my attempts to get it out of the carpet.



WAAAAAAH

I had that happen to me, but I broke three bottles at the same time-all dark blue, on a light beige carpet!

my CMIYN fell and broke too...... the day after I bought it!! maybe those particular bottles are weak? Depending on what color carpet you have, you may be able to get away with using remover?? not sure about that though :( good luck!

I spilled a bottle of polish on my carpet too, but that was ALL due to my own clumsiness. I researched it and, believe it or not, Windex works! I cleaned the bright red out of my tan carpet and it was spotless. However, I cleaned it RIGHT AFTER I spilled it, so I don't know if it'll work if you've let it sit for a while. Hope I helped! :)

Smita- aw, I guess it is :( But that is true and CMIYN has like a thousand dupes so I can find another

Veronica- Thank you!! That did help a lot :D

Caroline: Ouch! Mine is like sparkly blue on whitish blueish carpet..hard to describe haha

Anon- Huh, maybe...because none of my other OPIs broke but it could just be the angle that it fell

polished- GAH, Savior!!! haha the windex did the trick! Thank you so so so much!
