Dont know if acetone affects polyurethane or nitro... You could scrape it with a razor blade. Just angle it down and run it across the spot like a plane iron. Hope that made sense.
Acetone affects (dissolves) nitro. If your guitar is poly you can dissolve the nail polish off. If its nitro dont even think about it.

To which then assuming the nail polish was clear you can use the Dan Erlwine levelling, sand and finish polish technique.

I did it recently. Works really well if youre careful & patient. In this hes repairing a chip but the levelling and beyond is relevant to you. Great vid. Check it out.


BTW I an in no way associated with Stewmac.
