Did you take the shine off the tips before applying the gel?

You need to see tha nails to determine the problem.

The white tips would have a shiny finish to them, you need to buff them slightly to make them look matt, then the product will grip, without doing this they indeed will peel off.x

Defenitly they need to be buffed , also did you cap the free edge as gel can can have slight shrinking, Did you put the gel on in one go or sevral thin layers ?
With White tips the UV light cannot pass through for a compleet cure so you need to work in layers,
