Hardwood surface application

I just laid a 2 ľ red oak plank floor in living, dining, kitchen, hall and master bedroom. Itís unfinished and Iím using Waterlox to cover it. I have put down two coats of original formula sealer/finish. This is the first time Iíve used this product. The company recommends two coats of the sealer/finish and then a top coat of finish (Iím using high gloss) for hardwoods such as oak.

After the second coat of sealer/finish the flood is starting to look like its got a coating. I can see some shine, but it does not look really coated yet. Is this normal? Iíve only used polyurethane before so it always looks coated after the first application. I can still feel some wood grain/texture on the floor after the second coat so I donít know if I should add another coat of sealer/finish or go ahead with the top finish coat. Also, if I do add the top high gloss coat and it looks like I need another, can I just add another top coat? From what I can tell you can just add more and more of Waterlox and it just keeps building up the surface. Anyone have experience using Waterlox that can help advise me?
