Final step for finish on hardwood floor?

I just sanded an oak hardwood floor and put 3 coats of clear satin poly. Seems like it could use a buff or a wax oil finish of sorts. any ideas or suggestions for the Final step on a hardwood floor? or do nothing at all?

Did you sand and remove the dust between coats of poly?

Sounds like you want more shine, which means the satin was not the right choice for you.

A coat of gloss polyurethane on top might help.
