Sounds like you're perfect. It should be nice and smooth to the touch, and shouldn't really have any spots that catch your fingers if you buffed it. The idea of buffing is to clear the wax out of the little channels in the base so they can do their job and channel the water under the board.

If you ride switch, buffing in one direction makes zero difference, I buff in both directions (back and forth).

And you'll know you need to wax again when you base looks dry. (really easy to see on a black base)
