painting two coats


I will need two coats of paint. Should I cut in and then roll and repeat or can I do two coats of cutting in and then two coats of rolling?

Somewhat depends on the paint and sheen-
Typical would be cut first -roll- repeat.
Some newer paints you can cut in and let dry- then roll- some you need to roll into while the cut is still wet-
More info about what you're using needed.

The professional approach is to cut in, roll first coat, allow to dry. Repeat process for best coverage and to eliminate "hatbanding" and "holidays" or any type of lap marks.

I figured I'd have to do it all and then repeat, but I was hoping to get the brushwork done and then go to rolling. Oh, well. I am using Ben Moore eggshell finish...cream over gold color. Thank you!

Which line in BM? If Regal Select or Aura- you can and should cut in, let dry- then roll. ( But roll close)
Regal regular can be in lighter colors, but in darker ones it is better to roll into a wet edge.
Same with Ben, Super Spec.
