    Thanks for sharing the above. Sometimes I think other people think I'm crazy when I tell them about

    Pad Haze


    Also - I have NOT found the RUPES yellow and even their white foams to be the softest of the available options.

    It was most likely the polish, not the pad. Their fine polish does not finish well, unless the paint is hard. Rupes yellow pad will finish better than softer pads, IME.
