Depends on the color of the car. Flake or no flake. Prep work involved. etc...:ignore

I have not tried NB but the wettest looking wax I've used so far is CG 5050.

I have tried many waxes and sealants (over 20) from Zymol to natty's blue. In general, on my car, when preped right Pinnacle Sourveran looks the wettest. It takes two coats 24 hours apart and wait another 48 hours for the wax to fully cure and show its true colors. Natty's Blue and 50/50 are very good waxes.

All the answers were correct, however from what I hare read and observed, putting a glaze (Megs #7) for example on before a pure carnuba will definitely give you a wetter look, especially on dark colors, Blue, Red, Black, etc,.

I have yet to see any lsp give a deep and wet look as one of the authentic zymols IMO. There are a lot of good brands out on the market, so your best bet may be to compare several waxes and see which one will give you the best (and not necessarily just "wet") combination of depth, wetness and clarity.

I would try one of the zymols, victoria, cg5050, p21s and pinnacle souveran.

Too subjective. Paint color and quality of prep will determine your final result. I am sure you will find the most LSPs will look "wet" with proper prep. With that said, Souveran for darks and Collinite for light colors would be my choise for a wet look.

+1. The #1 factor in a wet look is a mar-free finish. Once you have that acheived, which is no small feat, don't discount using a glaze under the wax. Not this this is the only (or best) choice by any means, but I had great results from VM a few weeks ago on my dark red metallic paint.

You should not overlook the quality of your lsp in that regard as well. Prep is essential for a good finish, but there are enough differences in lsps that will determine just how good a finish result your paint can achieve.

Finding an optimal combination of prep and lsp combinations, as well as paint color and quality will ultimately determine which lsp can work best for your paint.

One wax (it's actually a polymer-based sealant that contains several natural waxes, as well) that is surprisingly not much recommended is 1Z Glanz Wax. It makes metallic paint look VERY wet and glossy.

Excellent wax, Einzstatt (1Z) Ultra. Great appearance, easy application, Buffing and somewhat durable.
