Yes, this morning I was lacking a bit of good judgement and common sense. I was using nail polish on a cloth on our table but the wand fell out of my hand and landed on the wood. I panicked and googled it. I read someone used a magic clean eraser and, while I thought it might scuff the surface, i read more stories of people that did the same so I went for it.
Guess what. It scuffed. The surface is a polished wood and you can see the scuff in certain light. The nail polish is all gone but when you look closely you can see little tiny scratches that read as a big difference in finish.
Does anyone have any advice without refinishing the whole table top? I was thinking maybe waxing it or polising it. Any products out there that can help? HELP! I cried. I may or may not still be crying.

I’ve seen people using walnuts on scratched wood surfaces and it’s suposed to help. That’s all I’ve got.

Thanks! Hmm.. Do you know if that would just be regular walnuts or if they should be crushed, made into a paste… also, would that be best for tiny little scratches or bigger scratches.
It looks like I took a piece of sandpaper to the top. Haha. (at least I can chuckle about it now I guess)

Just tried rubbing canola oil all over the top and focusing on that area… but it didn’t work. Looks about the same as before. Maybe a smidge better.
Any suggestions? I’m desperate!

I was going to recommend walnuts too! And I think you’re supposed to just use them whole and rub them over the surface.

Yep, use a whole walnut and some orange or olive oil.
