Using Dupli-Color Perfect match with other clear coat brands

Finally, I finished painting my bumper. I applied 3 coats of paint and 2 coats of clear. Today, I wet sanded and polished it. It is super smooth now, but it's not very shinny.

My question: can I apply one more coat of clear from another spray can brand? (Dupli-Color Perfect Match is very expensive)
Can I used a lacquer clear coat like Rust-Oleum Specialty Lacquer, which is like $6 at Home Depot?

I would not recommend it. Stick to dupli-color.
