Different coloured polish?

A mate of mine polished my car the other day since I don't have any patience for that kind of stuff, and it came up pretty shiny. Problem is it also showed up all the various stonechips all over the car since bits of polish are left in the imperfections. This looks glaringly obvious on my black car as I'm sure you can imagine.

Is there such thing as a black polish instead?

I know that, but it's a pain going round the entire car just to dig it out of every single stone chip.

I used this on the Skyline and finished it off with the Navi wax advanced and got great results as a few on here can confirm

I tried it once, didn't get on with it at all...looked like badly colour matched goo sitting inside the scratch/stonechip which to be fair is exactly what it is eh.

Try a liquid polish such as Turtle Wax Liquid Ice next time, goes on real easy and you can build layers to give a very deep shine.
