Painting and Sealing a Laminate Counter Top?

I painted my old bathroom counter tops to mimic capstone. I researched and read and asked questions and repeat. I was very apprehensive, but I got there. I was so proud! I put on my first thin coat of Minwax Polyacrylic. I sanded, a bit too hard. I am heavy handed and had never done a project that required this. Now the heartbroken part. I had white places and spots. I have just applied a primer coat on top of that to start over or just paint the thing and forget it. But I will once again have to apply a sealer. Please advise. I don't know what I need to do. I do not want brush marks. I also do not want to go thru this again!


Thank you all for you tried and true advise.

Normally you should be using steel wool to do the cleanup work and light sanding on the countertop. When applying the final coat use a paint roller to avoid the brush marks. Only use a brush around the edges to finish it off.
