“Don't rub, but gently dab the nail polish stain with a clean white cloth. Check if the fabric contains acetate, triacetate or modacrylic. If so, don't attempt to use an acetone nail polish remover as the acetone in it will deteriorate the fabric. Instead, opt for non-acetone nail polish remover for these fabrics."

Does Tipex come out in the wash?

Tippex doesn't wash out. Luckily it's only a few small spots and you hardly notice them unless you really look but they won't wash away and i've washed the pinafore loads of times. Maybe a dry cleaners would be able to remove it, but if you wash it I think that sets the stain and then you have no chance of removing it.
