What's your advice?
Can you post a close up picture?
I've had this happen before. It was when I first started, and I thought the shoe polish color was supposed to rid of scuffs on the first coat. I ended up putting too much polish, which is likely what you have done. By now the polish should really have dried up quite significantly, and you may just take a brush to it. The brush takes off much of the product with any use, and may do you good in this situation. If it IS still gummy I wouldn't necessarily go this route, and in that case I'd wait for another member to chime in. It would be quite curious that the product would stay moist for this long however.
In the future, if you aren't going for high shine like you say, then truly you only need a very conservative amount of polish. Taking it to the limits of patience you can watch Crat's spit polish video, as you will get a good understanding of the very sparse amount of polish and it's great effect.
