Donnie at Rings and Things II sells a polish on his website:

I'd stay away from Brasso for your cups.

Greetings and Salutations,

As an outdoor performer who talks about "the oldest trick ... in magic," I prefer my cups to patina (if that's the right wording). I think the patina makes more sense in talking about how old the trick is and how long I've been performing the trick for audiences.

That being said, I'm thinking bright, shiny cups under stage lights would look great. So it would depend on the venue and how you present the effect.

Just my $.02 (USD) worth. YMMV

The balls are the stars, not the cups. Bright shiny cups can distract from the flights of the balls.
