Put wax first or polish first?

I tried searching but I couldn't find the answer. Do you put coat of wax first or coat of polish first? Thanks in advance!

CLAY BAR. If you've never tried it, you should.

Yea the clay bar will make the paint as smooth as glass. Make sure you dont polish the car too often. Maybe every two months.
