Paint not adhering


I used behr paint on my family room walls before reading this forum. Big mistake. I had DE eggshell on my walls previously. I am doing a two color wall with a chair rail between them. We painted the top half with a light tan color and it came out beautiful, covered in one coat, adheres to wall well. The bottom half is painted with a dark brown color, same exact paint. The paint on the bottom half is not adhering to the wall. It scrapes right off with my fingernail. I emailed Behr and they said to sand wall and repaint. I did that, still doesn't adhere.Next I sanded and painted

with KILZ then did another coat of the dark paint. Still scrapes off. Any suggestions on what to do next?

Get both a quality paint and primer, sand, clean and start again

Neither kilz or behr qualify as quality

kilz original oil is the exception
