If you’re talking about lacquer from a spray can, it should take about 15-20 minutes on a warm day. In the cold it can take up to an hour, in my experience. There’s something else going on if it’s been more than 24 hours and it still isn’t dry. Even a heavy coat shouldn’t take that long. Are there any runs in the finish?

No runs. I even brought it inside to dry. Not sure what to do

If you sprayed it too heavy you would have runs in it. I assume you shook the can well and all that direction stuff? I’ve sprayed lacquer in colder weather and had to also bring it indoors but never had any problems with it curing. Give it a little more time. How long did the stain dry before you sprayed it?
