OK, Slick you say...
You need to seal the MDF first. Spackle and a light sanding.
Then shellac to seal everything. Again light sanding.
Then your latex but I'm not sure that I would do it that way.
Finally, AFTER the latex has cured (4-6 weeks) a couple of coats of Polycrylic.
Is the result going to look like a black lacquer box? No but it will be as slick as you can make it.
If you really want it slick, slick a French polish would be best.
Use the right tool for the job.
