When you say acrylic, I assume you mean acrylic enamel with
hardener added? My guess is that the paint wasn't fully cured
when you started buffing and is still soft.

Even with hardener, acrylic enamel dosen't cure as fast as
the urethanes. Try waiting a week or two and buff it again;
the gloss should come back.
