Noob painting question for clear over decals

Ok so Iím coming from lexan painting but trying my hand at mini z white bodies. I plan on painting with tamiya fine primer then TS paints. Then applying waterslide decals. At this point I want to apply clear so I can polish it out to a good finish. So I have heard ts-13 will burn the decal. What if I apply something like x-22 over the decal first? Would this work? Keep in mind I plan on using rattle cans for this whole thing as I donít own a airbrush and have never used one. (Maybe in the future). So can I put down a thin layer of x-22 over the decal with a brush... let dry... then ts-13 for a few coats... let dry... polish.... then the matte details like window trim?

I saw a ton of you guys use future floor polish but I assume I would need an airbrush for this right?
