    There's no way to tell from a picture. Each paint has different clear coat hardness. You start with your lightest polish and your lightest pad. You go over it slowly and make 4-6 passes. Then you wipe it with 15% alcohol water solution and you check it IN THE SUNLIGHT. If the swirls are gone, great! If not, your options are

    a. more passes with same polish and pad
    b. more aggressive pad
    c. more aggressive polish

    Repeat until the swirls are gone to the best of your ability.

    You can check a polish's aggressiveness by referring to Autopia's Polish Comparison Chart Updated 02/2017.
