Polish and waxes are not permanent in their brilliant shine. Objects that they are applied to - are meant to be re-polished, or in the case of shellack, meant to be re-waxed either after a certain time or after so many hand uses. In the wood furniture world, from which these polishes were adapted, this is well understood. But in the "quick make it world" of wanting a different finish - while it is beautiful, it works temporarily (weeks to few months) unless care is taken to clean and wax on regular occasion - in other words: occasional maintenance for continued clean shine.
