From a detailer's perspective, your car looks like a pearl you'd find on a rope with other pearls around the neck of some scantily clad model wearing a thong and animal fur.
Your car looks as it should, as Lampoon said, unique to the luster of its finish.
If you want to help accent that hard, crystal shimmer (much different than the deep wet of traditional finishes) I would suggest a synthetic sealant as opposed to a carnauba based wax. The other plus to this is that the synthetic sealant will last longer and is many times easier to apply and remove than traditional waxes.
If you still prefer the carnauba look, it will go on right over top of a 24-48 hour cured synthetic sealant and give that deep, wet shine. DO NOT use a cleaner wax...just a carnauba with no detergents, cleaners, or perfumes. Also...how long did you let your own coats of wax cure in between coats?
