painting over latex enamel


I have a shelf that I painted a few months ago that I need to touch up with a new coat of paint, due to some damage from new construction. The paint is high gloss latex enamel. Can I paint a new coat on top of the existing finish, or do I need to sand or prime first?

I would just give it a light sandinding to knock the gloss down, giving the new paint a surface to bite to. Priming isn't necessary unless you have bare spots.
