Varathane Finish is Still Tacky

I used oil based stain on an area of a coffee table that I had used water based verathane on. The stain has stayed tacky, what should I do? Thank you for any help.

Eventually it will dry but may be subject to peeling. I would sand to bare wood and start over. Why did you mix water and oil finishes? You should have used either oil or water finishes.

I'm confused. Did you stain over Varathane?
