Question Painting help

I am working Painting a Victoria Secret store and the owners want the wood cashwrap (registers) to really shine and have a glass looking finish, we sanded them, primed them and painted with a latex high gloss but it just doesn't shine any advice as to what to do next....our time is limited...

Solvent base finishes always have more sheen than latex. An automotive finish would have probably been best for the cash registers...... but I wouldn't apply it over latex.

Another coat of the latex gloss is probably your only option if time is limitted.

I saw in your other thread that this is a wooden cash register. Because it's made of wood, I wouldn't recomend using any automotive type finish. Oil base gloss enamel would be best but 2 coats of latex gloss should provide a decent sheen.
