If you primed them and painted them the same day. This is why,the paint under the top coat will crack,did you put them in the sun.??.or the paint has had a reaction to the primer.you will have torub down and start again.and this this give the primer a day to dry,than you should be fine,

The primer seemed dry. And there was no cracks on the primer? The paint only cracked after the gloss was put on :s

When you say gloss do you mean lacquer

Too hot, in sunlight? or paint reacted with primer...primer wet?

Where was the paint from?

The paint is the same make as the primer? So surly that wouldn't react?

The laquer is a different brand. It only cracked when that was drying?

The lacquer may not be compatible with the paint (?) and you might need to try all three from the same brand.
