Condensation after black out

Im getting minor condensation in my head lights after i put them back on after i did the diy black out. I used a full tube of clear liquid nails to seal them again so I really dont think there is any way water is getting in. I didnt however put them together when the paint was still tacky. Im thinking after the paint fully dryed, there was some mositure left over and thats what im seeing. I have gone threw a few car washes and driven alot in the rain since i did them and the water has not gotten any worse in side.
Im thinking about taking a bulb out and putting a hair dryer to the back of the light and see if that fixes it. Anyone else have any ideas?

don't have the hair dryer up full blast on the hottest heat
i'd go with the medium settings. patience is a virtue.

yea, when you put the sealant on the lights, you should have had them set for a while, i set mine for a full day and then put them back on the next day and i had no problem with fog at all.... the sealent is most likely what caused it, because its moist when u put it on and it needs time to dry fully. for now, open up the rear of ur lights (the rubber guard) and then u can drive around a lil like that get some air in there, if u do the dryer be carefull or u'll get water spots on the inside of the lights.
