Orange Peel is typically caused by not enough liquid solution, and too much squeegeeing. Some of it goes away within a day or two, but after a few days - what you see is what you get.
Bubbles after a few days? You could probably get rid of them by pushing down on the spots but that may lead to more orange peeling effect if you do it too much.
Best way to apply the XO (and other wet type protectors) is to liberally spray both the protector and the glass, then drop the protector in place and slide it around to where it needs to be. Once there, just a gentle bit of squeegee action to let some excess liquid out so it doesn't keep sliding around. Then leave it alone to dry, putting pressure on it as need be, but avoiding squeegee type movement once the liquid's out, or you'll end up with orange peel.
