Whenever I add a color overlay layer style to an object in photoshop, it goes over top of any gradient overlay I have. Is there any way to change this order?

No way to change the order, but there is a workaround.

  1. Set the layer with the color overly.
  2. Duplicate the layer [layer 2] so it's above the first layer [layer 1]
  3. Set the Fill for Layer 2 to 0%
  4. Apply the Gradient Overlay to Layer 2.
