If you have perfect paint, indeed you don't need was or sealant to add shine. But for most cars, which haven't been perfectly paint corrected (nice work, btw), a layer of a high quality was or sealant will definitely improve the shine.
If you use a correcting wax on paint that hasn't been corrected at all, you will definitely see some level of improvement. But that's kinda like putting lipstick on a pig. If you want to do it correctly, you will only use wax to protect that shine that you achieved from polishing. Wax is a protectant, not a shining agent as manufacturers have led the public to bank on.
