2 totally different things my friend. You have to apply wax after machine polishing to protect the paint. Preperation is 90% of the overall finish. There are a few products you could keep in mind. Car-Lack 68 NSC is one of these as its an all in one product. It will cleanse your paint then leave a layer of sealant which is very durable and give a lovely finish. Most would then apply a wax or another sealant over this.
