Paint problems

A couple of months ago i fixed up my rear wheel arches as they were very rusty. I removed the rust, put on primer and then 6 thin layers of colour (red solid paint). It looked great so i didnt bother to T cut or polish it as it loked better than the rest of the car. 2-3 months later the new paint has become very dirty and if any petrol is spilt on the side of the car it melts the new paint.

Any i deas how to correct this? Do i need a coat of clear pain on top? Could it be that Halfords paint is not good quality?
