if the floor is smooth then don't worry about it.You will always see some trowel marks and glue residue unless you put some kind of chemical on it which you don't want to do.
You do want to check for cracks and aany deformities in the slab though,i would say moisture test too but with the vinyl being down and no probs then you are ok there.
Is this guaged or ungauged slate?Trowel size may be a factor as well
