    maybe a qtip to try to wipe it out. do NOT use nail polish remover that will just make it worse.

    I don't know a lot about nail polish ingredients wise maybe look up the brand name and see what's in it? the biggest concern for me would be breathing (their lungs work differently than ours) more than that she ate it. but chickens usually breath mainly through their nose not their mouth.
