Fusso Finish

Hi all,

The other weekend I applied Fusso Light to my Space Grey BMW. The resulting finish seems incredibly glossy but feels like it has done so to the detriment of the metallic finish of the paint. If anything it looks glossy and non metallic. Am I imagining things or is this the expected behavior of this product?

What, if anything, can I do to bring out the metallic flake in the paint a bit more? Presumably applying something else over the top isn't going to change much.

I can't imagine the wax leaves a thick enough layer to affect the appearance of the metallic flecks in the paint as long as it has been buffed off properly.
I've used Fusso dark with no issues.
As far as I know Fusso Light should give even cleaner results as it contains more cleansers in according to Nipponshine

If anything it should've increased the metallic sparkle. Perhaps the sheer increase in gloss is bright to the point where the shine somewhat hides the metallic surface.
