Hi jake its probably because the clear coat has not fully hardened,some clear coats can stay soft for weeks, dependent on the climate it has been applied in ie humidity,etc, decal solutions are normally ammonia based, and will soak through clear coats, most modelers use a product called Johnson Klear its a domestic acrylic floor treatment but is great on models as it is inert ie it will cover any sort of paint without reaction and most of us use it for dipping clear canopy parts in.

Jake,
here are the official specs for "hard surface" covering with Createx Colors Clear top:

Recommended painting conditions: 70-75 ̊F / 21-24 ̊C in a dry, dust-free environment. When painting in humid or colder conditions, allow for extended drying time. Use of air flow decreases drying time and is recommended as the primary means to cure paint. Avoid painting in humidity over 75% and temperatures below 60 ̊F / 15 ̊C

Those temps are a bit prohibitive [optimal 60-75F] IMHO and using a fan for increased airflow is asking for a good coat of dust on your finish unless the fan is filtered and cleaned regularly.
I would definitely go for the KLEAR.
