Anyone had less than great results with AEs polish as far as shine goes? I really can't seem to get a mirror going. I'm military so I know how to shine....just doesn't seem to be taking. Maybe it doesn't have the right balance of ingredients

Are you using the cream that comes in a tube, by any chance?

ya, it's a cream...but it still says polish on it? I don't think it lists ingredients but I assumed it would be for high shine. I guess I'm a dumbass if otherwise.

Right, the cream doesn't give a high gloss shine. For that you'd need a paste wax.

I'd be careful with parade gloss, as I've read that it is bad for nice shoes.
