Will paint stick to cold brick walls?

This past weekend I painted the interior brick wall in my bedroom. In the winter, the room is cool and never gets above 64. I live in Michigan and it got into the mid-teens overnight. When I went to pull off the blue edging tape where the wall meets the carpet, it pulled off the new paint! The wall was cold to the touch. I had primed the wall with Kilz and had painted using Glidden. The paint can said that the temperature should be 50 or above. I do not know what the temperature of the brick wall was when I painted. I currently have a space heater in the room and the door is closed. My thought is that the warm room will cure the paint that is on the wall and warm up the bricks. Time will tell, it is 14 degrees outside. If I had to do it again, I would wait until it warmed up outdoors. If I was forced to paint (?) I would warm the brick up first and keep it warm until the paint had cured.
