In most cases you would apply your base coat color then apply your candy until you're happy with the effect it gives you then apply clear. Since the clear is what you'll be sanding on you want enough film build to level and polish and the number of coats of clear depends on the clear you're using. Some low-end clear may need 5 or 6 coats while some better clear may only need 2 or 3 coats.
