An hour seems pretty excessive timewise for soaking off a set. Usually takes me about 15 minutes. what products are you using??

If it is taking you that long I can only think you must be working really thickly with the product.

I use the same as you do and 15 minutes is all it takes if you warm the soak off solution .. do you do that?

If you warm the solution in the way you describe (over warm water) it should speed up the process hugely. If not, then there is just too much product which is why it is taking so long.

Also file your enhancements before soaking so that they are rough and the product remover will have a key to work into hth
