Dry-finish polish for chlorinated latex?

I suspect it doesn't exist, but thought I'd ask.

Chlorination gives a slick surface that's as well-polished as the factory finish, which is fine for solid colors but doesn't get the depth of pearlesence of metallic sheet -- to really show off metallic, it still needs a shiny surface polish.

But when you put polish on chlorinated sheet, it doesn't slide against it self as well as dry chlorinated sheet.

Does anyone know a polish that gives a deep sheen but keeps the dry feel of chlorination?

All latex shine that I've ever encountered has been liquid.  You could try to minimize the amount of shine that gets on the surface of the latex by using a spray shine.

Spray shine would have the advantage of putting less of the shine onto the surface since it's a finer 'mist' that comes out, versus the thicker viscosity of the shine that you apply by hand.  Hope that helps!

In my experience any kind of shining product you use on latex is going add a sticky/tacky feeling.

Vivishine or an aerosol spray shine, like Camie 999 Dry Silicone, that you let 'dry' for a few days after application may help a bit, but not 100%.
