I did a BSE install for the first time, and while I was pretty sure I got most bubbles out, there are small spots that look like the skin was rubbed with fingerprints or small dust or its still wet.

The install was done about 10 hours ago, should I just wait it out a few more days, or is it possible my fingerprints or something got trapped underneath?

The back of my husbands phone looked like that. It took about four days for the bubbles to go away and now it looks awesome! Give a couple more days and see if it clears up.

mine looked horrible after the install but after a couple of days its disappeared.

also I removed the back skin a few days later because a speck of dust was trapped under the skin which was annoying me so after removing the dust I re-sprayed the the skin and applied it back on and it also looked really bad but after a couple of days looked fine again.
