Lacquer dries really fast so dust in the finish isn’t as much
of a problem as it can be with varnishes. Also lacquer
doesn’t need to be sanded between coats. Arguably
this makes lacquer easier to apply, though of course the
fumes are nasty.

If you want the toughest finish for the stuff you choose,
use gloss and rub it down to dull it out. Semi-gloss and
matte finishes have “flattening” agents in them which
weaken the finish a bit.
