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?

Thanks. Excellent news. My shoulders were getting tired just looking at the ceiling lol.
I put the second coat on without sanding - no problems, looks good so far.
