Help with polishing

I would love to search all day and find the answer; however, my computer is too slow, and I do not have the time with school and work, my apology in advance.

I seemed to have used too much polish; for, it looks marbled after wearing the shoes for a day. The leather is fine, but it looks like there is a glaze over it all, and not in a good way.

Do I just use turpentine to strip the wax off? If I am worried about this with wax polish should I switch to creme polish?

I think I applied to thick of layers; how many layers does one usually do to produce a mirror like shine on calf leather?

When using any polish, how often does one reapply? And should conditioner be applied everytime?

Have I damaged my shoes?!?
