For latex. I just finished(it's 10;30 pm) painting my kitchen ceiling with a semi-gloss. I plan on putting the 2nd coat on tomorrow afternoon. Do I have to sand or scuff before I put on the 2nd coat? I remember reading paint doesn't stick well to semi-gloss, but I'm unsure if that only applies to old well cured paints, or also new fresh coats?

I always sand any finish that has a sheen when applying a topcoat. It is not only for a smooth finish but also adhesion. But then again I could be wrong.

And if the paint isn't cured it really won't sand well.
