Strictly speaking to the NXT Liquid versus Paste, I've seen no notable difference in durability between the two. The primary difference is the method of application; just choose what suits your preferences.

As to the comments about Liquid Glass and the like, I'm not saying LG, Meguiar'*, etc. are bad products by any means, but I think there is one thing that needs to be cleared up.

NXT Tech Wax is actually a hybrid of a polymer sealant and a carnauba wax. I've gotten durability of 3-4 months from it, at most. Liquid Glass is a full-on polymer sealant which, yes, can last up to 6 months. However there are just as many good products out there which will fit the bill, such as Meguiar'* M20 Polymer Sealant, M21 Synthetic Sealant, or Zaino (among others). That is, IF you are looking for a sealant. It is also important to remember that by nature, you can't just buy "wax" and expect it to last as long as a sealant; the wax doesn't generally posess the same surface-bonding properties that are engineered into a paint sealant. No one product is better than another, it just depends on what you prefer for the look/etc

I also have to mention this: No product on the market is going to work to its full potential without proper surface prep prior to sealing and/or waxing. I think I would worry more about what is done to make the paint ready for the "Last Step Products {LSPs}" than what LSP in particular you're using. Any wax/sealant will last longer on a vehicle that has been properly cleaned/polished and prepared for it.

So, for those looking for the ideal "consumer-grade, DIY" paint prep and protection regimen, I'd grab Meguiar'* Deep Crystal Step 1 and Step 2 (the Cleaner and Polish) and follow this with 2 coats of the NXT Tech Wax (or something similar). Also, don't wait quite so long to apply a new coat. The reason it takes people so long to apply wax to their un-prepped vehicles is that there is NO protection, and usually lots of gunk on/in the paint that needs attention during the residue buff-off. The more often you apply, the less time and effort you'll have to put forth each time.

Here'* a '00 SLE in Maple Red (I think it was Maple Red) that was prepped with Meguiar'* M80 series polishes, and topped by 2 coats of the NXT liquid:
