Sprayed lacquer or latex would look more luxurious than formica. The main benefit with paint is you can still shape / ease your edges as desired. With formica you are limited to square and gentle radius shapes.
Woodcrafters has a gravity feed hvlp gun for $34. It looks exactly like my Porter cable gun, which I really like. Get the 2mm tip kit for latex.
Best of luck
