It seems like the question and responses are mixing decks and other topside surfaces.
MOST Waxes & polymers appropriate for non walking surfaces IMO but not for walking.
I have used woody wax on some deck / non skid surfaces and find it useful to keep those cleaner... easier to just wash down. If used properly it doesn't make decks a lot more slippery but it does a little. Be careful until it dries as it is slippery when applied.
I don't find it very durable but it's easy to apply after washing so not a big chore.

Can someone explain the process for Nufinish?
Is it just a wipe on/ wipe off process?

Wipe on wipe off just like wax. Use a damp cloth or sponge to apply. No direct sun.

Yes Woody Wax is slippery as snot until it dries but then I have not noticed any slipping on my Kiwigrip. I can wax the bow and side decks in about 15 minutes so it is simple to apply periodically. I just start at the stern on one side deck and work my way around to the bow and then the stern on the other side. You don’t want to walk on it before it dries. It really does make it easier to clean up the very aggressive Kiwigrip.
