Find some spray deodorant. Most deodorants have ingredients that can remove anything that cannot be cleaned easily, from markers to nail polish.
Spray the deodorant as close to your nails as you can. Make sure you don't injure yourself if the deodorant has a quick evaporating propellant that will cause freeze burns.
Wipe your nails with a cloth or napkin. The nail polish won't go away immediately, so persist until your nails are clean. Repeat step 2 if necessary.
Rub more thoroughly around the borders of your nails. That's where nail polish isn't completely removed the first time you try.

Find some top coat nail polish. Any nail polish you have on hand will also work.
Apply it to your painted nails.
Immediately wipe it off with a cotton swab/round. The polish should come off right away. If it does not, repeat this step.
No spray deodorant? Look for some body spray or perfume. All these products have similar properties and will work just the same.
Spray on a cotton ball or the fluffy end of a Q-tip. To get the most spray, press the Q-tip against the little circle on the nozzle.
Rub the Q-tip back and forth over your nail until the polish starts to disappear.
You may have to repeat step 3 a couple of times to get all the polish off.
If you don't have any of the items listed above, use hair spray. It has a similar chemical, which can remove nail polish.
Repeat the above steps.
Don't leave the hair spray on too long or it will dry on your nails.
Soak your hand in warm soap water for 2-3 minutes to remove the spray.
If you use nail polish to remove the spray, the cotton might stick to your nail.
You can also use hand sanitizer.
Instead of wasting a top coat to get nail polish off, you can use any nail polish. Make sure it's one you don't use or don't like.
Don't use regular deodorant. It may seem like the same thing but it doesn't work as a nail polish remover.
Make sure you're not allergic to spray deodorant.
Add a bit of warm water on a cloth and scrub it off.
If the coat is older, you can simply scratch your nails to remove it. However, you may damage your nails in the process.
You could also remove the nail polish with a regular nail file.
