To much base too fast and not enough flash time.....The base was still emitting solvents when you cleared it and the clear traped the solvents causing bubbles or it could be you waited TOO long before clearing and the clear didnt stick well...try scraping it off with a razor blade,it should come right off....theres no fix it has to come off and be redone.
