    Visit a vet, if you are unsure - better safe then sorry, young puppies go down hill quickly!

    Nail polish and nail polish remover is caustic and toxic to dogs, you should if swallowed not induce vomiting as it can cause more damage and burning.
    If he has chewed a pad with nail polish remover on it, I really think you should call your vet at the minimum and ask his advice and see what he thinks.
