Colt Mustang Help

I just purchased my first Colt today, well I laid it away at least. This is also just my second handgun overall as well. So, the gun in question is a nickel mustang in "excellent" condition. I've been looking for one for a while, and the nickel finish has no scratches or blemishes that I could see.

What product(s) and/or techniques are best for bringing the best back or out of Colt nickel? Any and all advice is welcome to make this thing shine.

First, don't use any cleaning solution that has ammonia, most especially not Hoppes or the nickel will peel off.

I used Flitz polish on mine, then I waxed it with Johnson's Wax.
