The only suggestion I have is to thin down the silver and do another coat. I can see the brush strokes and the colour underneath. A thinner second coat should fix that.
I'm assuming I'd have to use paint thinner to thin enamel paint? I've only ever used paint straight...
I suggest you try to stick to the same brand of thinner as the paint you used, or at least test out the thinner with a small amount of the paint before mixing more. Different brands of thinner (especially industrial thinner) can dull the silver paint. I once used industrial thinner to thin silver paint from a Gundam marker, and it turned a dull brownish-gray.
Just my two cents' worth.
