i think it depends on the type of plastic it is....you might be safer with a glass bowl..better still...soak some acetone onto your nail wipes...place onto the nail and then wrap in kitchen foil...cover hands in a warm towel..(warmed in the microwave) i find this works better and faster than soaking in any kind of bowl. x

If you prefer to soak off in bowls, I use 2 glass ramekins to put product remover in and stand those in dessert bowls which have a little very hot water in. HTH

All I do is put the product remover into a small glass dish, and dip some cotton pad into it and squeeze excess off. Then put this on the clients nails and wrap each finger in tinfoil....keeps heat in and its not messy.

This is what I do too... and it works much better than soaking in a bowl. This way you can work on one nail while the other ones are still soaking.

I soak off using tin foil wrapped over cotton pads too, is the easiest form of removal as if a client has only one nail that needs soaking you can wrap it and get on with the rest without having to try and keep that nail in a bowl and do the rest

I prefer to use the tin foil method, you can also place the clients hands in your heated mitts to spead everything up x x
