Noooooo it's terrible. It is very aggressive. If you must, use a very gentle kind of acetone-free nail polish remover - I would personally recommend Sephora's nail polish remover the one with nurturing oil. Use it carefully with a cotton bud. Good luck!!

I wouldn't do anything myself. If its an expensive or favorite bag, I usually take it to the shop itself and demand fixing service. I did it twice in the UK and it worked fine. Let them take a look at it, they should give you an idea on how to clean it before giving up entirely or doing something that might just ruin it for good. Good luck.

I second Sham3at Al Jillas
they sell those at boots as well but I guess all DIY will result in your bag change in color or so, o lil asaf ma 3indina in the region professional leather technicians :-S

Taking it to the boutique is a smart move... good luck :-)

Well the boutique can't do anything, its caviar leather and i was advised to gently tap it with acetone free nail polish remover (as sham3at al jillas suggested).. Still did not try it though..

When i was 10, i saved up and bought my first LV backpack - which i still have- 1 drop of nailpolish remover ruined the strap. Being the perfectionist that I was (past tense). I got so annoyed that i nver carried the bag gain.

the Lv monogramed part is canvas, but the strap looks leather-ish. I wouldn't experiment on a bag i like. .. unless u wanna personalise it and create nail-art-polish illustratios on it, now thats a different story. aurevoire.

the sales lady at chanel told me to use acetone free nail polish remover.. and the leather is kinda stronger than the strap in LV.. its more textured..
