Hi Matt and welcome. Usually the glossier the finish the harder the finish is, at least that is the old saying. Of course the glossier it is the more slippery it is too but don't you cover the top with non skid tape? There are also gritty additives that can be added to paint but I think the tape is better.
Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
