I hear that... and once it's cured... game over, you're living with it
The lacquer that you get in a spray can is whats called a single pack, it relys on evaporation to set. Most instruments these days are coated in 2 pack like the stuff on your car, this works by a chemical reaction where the hardener component chemically activates and cures its opposite part.
Single packs are okay for touchups, but it will always be a soft coating, more than sufficient for wear against hands but not really good enough for when you rest an instrument on a stand, example a saxophone rested on the stand under the bell, will leave imprints in the lacquer if sprayed in the last month or two with a single pack lacquer
2 Pack is sensational to spray with, if you get a run etc you simply sand it out and then buff to a smooth finish, modern coatings make such a difference
Hope this helps with info, we spray lacquer almost every day, so ask away
