Stupid Tumbling Question

I did a search and nothing came up so i'll pose my question. I like my brass very very shiny so I tumble my brass every time I reload back to near new looks. My question is: does excessive tumbling of brass decrease the lifespan or effect the brass in any negitive way.

I use only walnut shell with "Berry's Brass" tumble medium.

Tumble till they sparkle - no ill effects.

I tumble all my brass a minimum of 12 hours. I like shiny brass also. :D

I tumble my cases for 1 1/2 hours after every firing. I use crushed corn cobs. I do not add anything to them.

I tumble my brass as soon as possible after firing.Like a gun the quicker you clean it the easier it is.
