If you just want to add clear gloss here and there or all over, or even over your paint, etc, couldn't you use use a clear finish as usual, like Varathane, etc? (I may have forgotten some part of your info though). 

As long as the clear finish is water-based or alcohol-based, it'll be fine directly on polymer clay though finishes vary in their later strength (resistance to moisture/scratches).  Some people also use 2-part epoxy resins or 2-part epoxy glues for similar but thicker-in-one-go clear coats.
(Sanding plus electric buffing can also be done directly on cured polymer clay to take the surface all the way up to a high gloss.)

more info on clear finishes and sanding/buffing for gloss here, if interested:
