I apply the polish and remove it by hand, then finish off with one of those $30 buffers from Supercheap/K-mart. Brings it up a treat( wash the buffing pad regularly). If you have a proper buffer, keep it at SLOW speed otherwise you can damage the paint.

yeah i find the cheap soft ones are fine i do it the exact same way i just don't worry to much about not getting all the wax off because the buffer gets what you missed
