To be more exact, polish isn't "applied", it's worked into the paint until it breaks down sufficiently (i.e. "polishes" the paint, more accurately clear coat). I've worked some products in small spots by hand (Poorboys SSR2.5, Menzerna IP) and it's no fun. If you've got ANY significant polishing to do (swirl or defect removal over more than a small area), a PC buffer is highly recommended. You almost have to be TRYING to mess up the paint with a PC. Probably find 'em on ebay for a decent price.

Since I've gotten a little more into this and have been doing cars for money, I've invested in a rotary polisher. Makes very quick work of defects, swirls, scratches, but has the potential to damage paint quite easily.
