I did training with Star Nails but have never experienced a nail pinging off at all, never mind after 2 weeks. If a nail is going to ping off then it normally means that the nail wasnt prepped properly but this usually happens in the first few days. If a client told me that their nail had pinged off after that long i wouldnt believe 'em, lol. Hopefully somebody else will be able to shed a bit of light for you.

I think that after 2 weeks they usually ping off if the growth is a lot and if they`re too long. Did the client have them unusually long in the first place? if so, then after 2 weeks they will be too long.
It can`t be anything you`re doing if they last that long so you have to ask the client what she is doing that makes them come off. I don`t think it`d be your training either, stop being so hard on yourself

I agree with Debs, it could be the length. Plus when you apply a first set, the fileing promotes growth so they can grow quite rapidly the first couple of weeks. It alsomay be that you ahdn't built your apex quite right and made it a bit tip heavy, so it would ping off, just a thought. Hope this helps.
