Has anyone directly compared Nebula with Kiwami?

Looking for a wax to put on top of some Colly 845 and I've narrowed it down to these 2 waxes. Has anyone used both, and if so, what are your observations?

Thanks

Nebula is far less fussy to use than Kiwami as I found that I had to ensure it was very very thinly applied and only a panel at a time or it would be a pain to remove, where as nebula is a breeze to use

OK, so application is better with Nebula. Can I ask how they compared in finish, durability, etc? Cheers

Not a lot of difference in terms of finish but you will get increased durability with Kiwami but I'd sacrifice this for ease of use any day personally

Some strong competition for me there with Nebula being pitched against Kiwami lol, especially as I'm a big Fusso and King of Gloss fan!

Obviously the primary goal with Nebula is gloss, and lots of it. Durability wasn't directly a focal point during the development although based on the formulation I knew it had the potential to be more durable than the average show wax. In respect of durability, Kiwami is likely to have the edge due to it being a hybrid wax, so a combination of natural and synthetic ingredients. Nebula on the other hand is completely natural and uses natural gloss enhancing ingredients which is something I did specifically focus on during the development along with ease of use. This has resulted in Nebula being a wax that offers exceptional gloss while offering up to 2 months durability.

Do you ship to Spain? That's something else I need to consider (there is a supplier here in Spain of Soft99 products)...

Kiwami on top of fusso is a very good combo, lasts a very long time
