Angelwax enigma

I've got a ceramic coating on my car and I use kamikaze overcoat on it as a sacrificial layer. I've been thinking about trying some angelwax enigma! Am I correct in thinking this may be a waste of time going on top of the overcoat as it's not ceramic so I wouldn't gain anything from the enigma!! Ta.

Yup pointless
Ceramic toppers are chemically designed to bond to a base coat. Enigma isn’t, it’s a phenomenal wax but would have problems bonding to overcoat or a base coat

Angelwax do describe both Enigma and Fifth Element as able to top ceramic coatings. But you would lose that "self cleaning" property that a coating has. Enigma does stay cleaner for longer compared to other waxes I use, but it is still a wax so isn't as good as a ceramic coating at this aspect.
