I need to get paint off ext window trim

What is the best thing to use to get the panit off the aluminum trim that is around the windows on the out side. Someone did a roller paint job and got paint on the window trim not sure if it is oil based or not.

Nail polish remover will take off most paints. HOWEVER be warned it may damage the finish on the trim.. Though as I recall it does not seriously affect anodized finishes... Or baked enamal, but it will take off most paints not baked on.

Acetone will remove paint also. used on aircraft aluminum. Wipe excess off immediately and keep off any painted surface you do not want removed

nail polish remover IS acetone...

If its aluminum, using some on a rag to soften it up then scraping with a plastic scraper would work... just tape off the surrounding area..
