making latex concrete paint glossy

We are on a tight budget and have painted the floor of our new sales area with a latex anti-skid paint. We aren't happy with the look, but dont have the time or money to strip and re-do. Can we apply some type of product over it to make it glossy and easier to sweep? The anti-skid paint was not a good idea!

Paint in general was not a good idea. Paint will wear fast in the traffic areas. Next time stain the floor if cheap is your goal.

Another coat of paint will fix this for awhile.

they do make clear acrylic concrete sealer that is designed for light traffic areas like pool decks. i like PPG plex seal. i dont think that your latex paint is going to last very long though. did home depot tell you to do that?
