Polycrylic Fail

"What the" is right. After spending my precious time painting this face, my world got ruined. I applied the damn water-based polycrylic. Why? Because this is for a 5 year-old. And because I like to water down the acrylic sometimes to get the details right, once the water-based polycrylic was applied, it bled and smudged all kinds of details.
I tried to repaint it on top of the polycryliced layer, and now Elsa looks like every other actor on TV - caked with too much makeup. Then I tried to coat another layer of it, and it smudged again. When will I learn?? I am just going to let it set for a few days before nervously applying another coat.
