Your call on the colour; too many people on here get too het up over which colour to use on shoes and boots. For what it'a worth, I tend to use burgundy or dark brown cream.
I wax my Islays so tend not to bother with wax polish - you can
get a mirror shine on waxed leather but it will often smear. Plus, I'm not convinced that a mirror shine on grained leather actually looks that good.
