What can I do if my painted wood countertop feels chalky?

I have a 70 inch long, 36 inch wide piece of 3/4 inch thick plywood along with 4 metal (three rod) hairpin legs. The plywood has been sanded smooth, wiped down & sprayed with a white laquer paint. I let it dry overnight & then sprayed a clear laquer on top, but the piece still appears to have a "chalky" residue feel to it, rather than a slick laquer finish. Help!!
