Any way to fix gloss paint

I don’t know how to paint. I painted over a glossy entertainment center and the paint is peeling if I use my fingernail. I do not want to remove the hours of paint I did. Is there any way to seal in the paint at this point so it won’t come off?

Unfortunately the short answer is no.  You will have to remove the paint and start over.  The surface needs to be roughed up with some fine (100-150 grit) sandpaper.  Make sure you remove all the dust before painting.  Then a good quality bonding primer followed by two coats of paint.  

Generally speaking, ordinary paint that is used for walls isn’t the best choice for something like an entertainment center.  Use an oil based paint or a waterborne alkyd because they dry to a harder finish.
