Ok to use polishing compound on metallic paint?

I did a quickie paint job on a new fender, using a blue metallic (single-stage) acryllic laquer out of spray cans. It turned out pretty good, but the finish is a bit dull.

Is it safe to use polishing compound on this? The paint can says you can use rubbing/polishing compound after a week, but I'm not so sure how well metallics will hold up. Thanks!
