Primer should not be used as a top coat on most surfaces. The

purpose of primers is to give a good base or tooth for the top

coat, this means it will attract dirt, fingerprints and such more

readily than a good quality top coat. The only place a primer is

sometimes used as a top coat is as a cheap ceiling paint.
