    Its not going to hurt anything, but clay barring is done to remove all the contaminents from your paint prior to waxing/sealing the paint. It probably won't get much if any at all debris in the paint by sitting over night but it is ideal to clay bar then wax/seal the paint directly after.

    You can do IPA/Water 50-50 mix wipedown (IPA= Isopropyl Alcohol available at Target, Kmart, Supermarkets etc...)
    Wipe down with IPA/H2O mix before you wax to clean up the claybar residues, and what not. This will ensure a nice clean surface to lay your polish down. What you don't want to do is leave the wax on overnight, as it might get debris and dust you don't want to rub across the paint
