Carnival wax doesn't last as long as a sealer wax because the sealers tend to be more synthetic. However, the carnauba gives a great wet look, and that's why it's usually used last.
Yo TCAT thanks for the info. I've never used polish on anything before so this might be a good place to start. I did use a gloss clear (because that's really the only kind I could find) so my pieces are already glossy/shiny like. Would polishing take that off?? Never thought about waxing my interior pieces but that sounds sweet!
