polishing new paint

I had a single stage paint job done and a month later decided to polish it with a buffer (first time) and Meguiars dual action cleaner polisher.
I put it on with the buffer (wool pad) and wiped it off by hand. At first the result looked fine, but later I realized there was a blotchy, cloud like mist look all over.
I couldn't polish it off by hand so I used wax remover which left a slight film. Then I used a cleaner type wax (by hand) to redo all.
It came out very nicely, until the sun hit it, then a horde of ghost like graffitti buffer lines made an unwanted appearance.
Looks lame!
Not happy!
Have I ruined my paint or is there a solution for my stupidity
