Not a great plan, real sanding would have given you half a chance of it sticking for a short time but liquid sand is a joke and never should have been used.
Paint of formica is not likly to work at all for long.

I would invest in new furniture instead

laminate should be sanded and primed with an adhesion primer, if its worthwhile...
if the paint is not sticking, youll need to remove it if you want to move forward.

Melamine paint is designed for painting melamine and laminate surfaces but even so you may have adhesion problems long term. It is not cheap and is a bit of a challenge to work with since it is so sticky. And Melamine is prone to chipping. It does come in factory colors and supposedly there are now at least light color tint bases as well but I have not used them. See what your real paint store suggests.

You might have bought some time with paints for plastics like Krylon Fusion (only comes in rattle cans) or the Rustoleum primer (comes in liquid and rattle cans and you can paint over it with anything) and plastic paint line (rattle cans).

You will have to scrape what you put on off at this point. It sounds like it is coming off on its own so this should not be a major ordeal. You will have to use an actual abrasive and not a chemical to scruff up the surface.
