Hold the phone!:no::no::no:
If it is laminate it is, at the end of the day, plastic fantastic. You will need something like a plastic primer (Rustoleum brand plastic primer comes to mind. It comes in liquid and rattle cans and you can paint over it with anything reasonable) or rattle cans of paint just for plastic like Krylon Fusion.
You might get a real paint store melamine paint to stick. Conventional primer, even high bond, and subsequent finish will not work. They are not formulated to adhere to a laminate or plastic surface. And I would not bet on the plastic primer or paints lasting as long as you might like without flaking off. :thumbsup:
