Painting over ceramic tile

I have a small area of ceramic tile that I want to paint to match the surrounding wall. I tried priming, then painting, but the paint is peeling/sliding off the ceramic.

What is the best way to approach this? I assume there is some surface preparation (sanding?) involved?

You likely used the wrong primer....but in any case, sand all the failing paint off now, wash the dust with Bullseye 1-2-3, Aqua Lock, C-I-L Problem Solver (my favorite) or Fresh Start...leave 24 hours, then paint. A light sanding before the primer always helps. Once the primer and paint has cured (about 14-28 days), you'll be just fine.
