Could be the lid isn't hammered on tight between coats. I don't know how recently you got the varnish, but it has about a one-year shelf life if the lid is sealed tight.

Two suggestions.

1. Always dispense the varnish into a cheap plastic cup, and brush out of there, replacing the lid immediately. This minimizes the amount of solvent that escapes from the varnish stored in the can.

2. The trick to getting lids on really tightly is to press the lid on, then invert the can on the floor. Now, STAND on the can. That really squashes the lid on. Works great.
