Default Will the screen protector bubbles go away, see pic?

Hey guys, I installed the skinomi skin a couple minutes ago. I think the screen might not have been wet enough when I applied it. Will these go away on their own? Do I need to throw it away? Can I remove it and try again? See the full sized picture below.

DONATE TO ME
they do usually permeate through the glass and plastic protector itself, but it will take a few days to completely go away

Donation is appreciated but not required, a cup of Coffee would suffice

I'm worried that only the small ones will go away. Will the larger ones disappear too?

how long has that protector been on there? and which protector is it?

those bubbles seem a tad large and i'm not feeling too confident about them going away. normal "raindbow reflecting shiny" bubbles are normal if you applied using a soap solution... but those seem too abundant to have resulted from that type of application. did you use a credit card to push them out?

if it hasnt been on that long, take it off and retry.

I've put on these crappy "invisible-shield" wet apply screen protectors before and never had that many bubbles. You should redo it and try to get it a bit better.

Actually you shouldn't "wet" the screen, just wet the skin (or dip the whole skin in the solution and let the excess water drips out before applying it)

However, if you're certain that the bubbles weren't caused by dust under the skin, then they should disappear within a week.
