chances are that a lot of the swirls are from you dragging around very small dirt particles that a clay bar would have removed, with the wax applicator pad.
Unless your paint felt as smooth as clean glass when you waxed it, you were probably making more swirls.
And wax goes on SOOO easy after a clay bar. (bewarned, it does not remove old wax)
