confusion combining mask and adjustment layers

Recommended Posts

I am a long term photoshop user and trying to get used to AP. 


I have two rasterized object layers on the canvass. Both are circular shapes with transparent backgrounds.


I want to overlap them, and make the overlapping area a different color. I also want to desaturate the two layers.


I tried duplicating one of the layers and placed it inside the other. That does a great job masking it. But the challenge I face is APPLYING AN ADJUSTMENT LAYER TO ONLY THE PARENT LAYER, not the children.


An example of my layers:


circle one

  adjustment1: desaturate

  circle two

    adjustment2: hue shift


circle two
  adjustment3: desaturate
