I have used a lot of polyshades. My favorite is Minwax Gloss Pecan Poloyshades.
My only problem with polyshades is application. Most stains I brush on or wipe on and walk away. With polyshades I have a problem with it “gunking up”. The way I do polyshades is I brush it on. I leave it for a few minutes, then I wipe it with a clean, lint free cloth. It produces a nice finish.
I use the gloss pecan polyshades because I like the look of it. In the end though, my personal verdict is that it really doesn’t eliminate the need for polyurethane. After applying gloss pecan polyshades, I still apply a coat of polyurethane over that.
