Yes for optimal look and protection you would layer your sealant after a glaze or polish... then for even more depth and gloss a carnauba wax on top of the sealant.

In a nutshell the following process is ideal:

Wash --> Clay --> Wash --> Abrasive Polish or Compound (if needed) --> Finishing Polish --> Glaze --> Sealant --> Carnauba Wax

There is no real benefit to putting a non-carnauba wax on top of the polymer sealants as there will be no added gloss or depth and no added protection. So Carnauba Wax is the true topper wax that goes on last!
