Default Layering wax and polish

Ive gotten into a routine with my bi-weekly car washes..

I wash with rainX soap
Rinse the car thoroughly and hose it down without a hose nozzle so more of the water disappears, and use a absorber XL to wipe the glass dry.

I use Eagle One Was-As-You-Dry to wax/dry the car off..
Then I choose a section or two to polish with NU Finish polish (stuff is awesome BTW).

My questions are.. is it doing any harm or is it good to layer wax and polish over and over like this? Should I be stripping everything off before this process? And is this a bad order to do things?

I doubt the wax-as-u-dry really has much to it anyway it goes on so lightly to avoid streaking.

The reason I ask is that I am considering buying a quality wax and doing the car over with that then NU finish polish on a day off to have a thick protective coat.. is this a bad idea?

My 06' Subaru had all kinds of tiny nicks and paint discolorations from road tar/bugs/sap so I want to get a strong layer of protection going.
