I always use thin CA at 1800 revs… apply anything up to 20 coats which gives a decent layer. I then go through the acrylic polishing pads range starting at 600 (usually start with 400 then 600 sandpaper then move onto 600 pad) up through the supplied range.

No idea whether it may or may not be important, however, if old practices no longer work, have you considered the quality of the CA. CA has a limited shelf life, especially in the open. I keep my CA in a bar fridge and threw a heap out when I discovered their limited shelf life… just a thought.
