Which wax will bead up?

I wax my car the other day, it looked really nice, but yesturday it rain, and half my wax is gone. What i mean, is that its still shiny but alot of water and dust is collected. Is there a wax that will bead water up like rainx? I am leaning towards Nu-Finish

all wax if applied correctly should allow the water to bead up. I would go with Meguiars. Once the water stops beading off its time to wax again.

I use NU FINISH....I find hat it lasts the longest. I use Meguires, and mothers too but the wax bead doesnt last that long.

To everyone that is using Nufinish, what color are your cars? Are they silver or some other light color?

I have a Red civic and i use the Meguiars 3 step Deep crystal method and it lasts a while. I was under the impression that the wax lasts longer if the paint is prepared properly. Properly meaning cleaned and polished before the wax is applied
