Need Help & Advice for Kitchen Cabinet Painting Issues

Hi Guys -

I would love some advice and guidance from you all. Our kitchen cabinets were painted with a water-oil hybrid paint - Dunn Edwards Aristowall - and the paint isn't coming out well at all. It's showing things through and not really hard and they have had to do so many more coats of paint then I would have ever expected. I have started to ask a couple other wood finishers what they would recommend and every one of them says we must use a laquer paint and have it all repainted. I'm not sure what to do here as the cabinets feel rough and the paint feels a bit shallow and soft - even though it's been painted so many times.

Do you think we should only use a laquer paint on our cabinets? Are there any issues with painting over the hybrid paint with another paint?

Thank you so much for the help!
