Are you using Scrubfresh as if you were removing two coats of red polish - what adhesive do you use - I used gelbond and think it is correct - do the tips not stiock at all, as in you dont even get to apply L&P

Sometimes new ones move the tip around when they are applying, or don't apply enough pressure.
If you move the tip around at all, you will interrupt the setting process and will have to start again.
If you are not applying enough pressure (sometimes hard on yourself) then the adhesive won't set because it sets with firm pressure.
Press down firmly on the nail and if necessary hold for 10 seconds all the time applying firm even pressure and no adjustments to the tip. AND don't check it!! It will stick.
