Larry, you need to thin the top coat a little to make it flow wetter and better,the thinner you have will do fine, just add enough to be able to stroke a nice wet film, be sure to use a good natural hair brush , how ever getting a spray can of lacquer would be a quick and easy , be done sort of thing, I like the spray ‘Deft”, its all nitrocellulose lacquer , and will chemically bond well, what you are getting is basically one coat of lacquer will partially dissolve, or better put bite into the previous coat, it sounds like the lacquer you are brushing is thicker , and it wants to drag ,as well the coat under it is melting somewhat as well, the thinner mix will help, but lay it on as quick as possible and move on, but again the spray can will be better and faster and used as a final coat over a sanded smooth surface you should be done, sand up to about 320 or finer , 600 would be great, before spraying, as spray can lacquer is thinner and lower in solids so it could take several coat to fill the sand scratches if you use a courser grit
