If you are using an enamal clear you should be OK, but still build up slowly. Since you didn't thin the 1-shot (which helps it cure) I wouldent clear it for a week, or you can blast it with a heat lamp or the best is to set it in the sun for a couple days.

Good Luck!
I gotta say that I lay wet coats over HOK striping enamel almost immediately after they have cured... never lifts or does anything weird. One-Shot is the standard of the industry... but the HOK striping enamels really are great.
