vinyl tile

recently put down this 12" by 12" self adhesive tile from home depot. the self adhesive didnt look like it would stick well so i used a primer that they sold for those tiles and the next day i layed the glue they sell for vinyl tiles. the glue dried and layed the tile when it was tacky it looked fine the first day but now i see some corners and edges are sticking up. is there a solution to this problem? should i carfully remove those tiles and put more glue?

ps .... forgot to mention that i didnt trowel the glue but rolled it on. i have a feeling that has something to do with it. but again some areas look fine.

If you must put those cheap crappy tiles down, you should use vinyl tile adhesive, not primer.
