You can't say lubi kupić" in this context. In general, lubić prefers imperfective verbs. Lubi kupić translates to likes having bought* and can be used only if there's some temporal context for it, so it's clear if the completion of the purchase happens before or after some point in time, and even then it's not common:
Ona lubi kupować buty. – She like buying shoes.
Ona lubi kupować buty na niedzielę. – She like buying shoes for Sunday.
Ona lubi kupić buty na niedzielę – She likes having (bought) shoes for Sunday. (having the shoes bought is more important than the process of buying them; each Sunday means most likely a new pair) – uncommon and kind of awkward!
Ona lubi kupować buty w niedzielę. – She likes buying shoes on Sunday.
Ona lubi kupić buty w niedzielę. – ungrammatical!
Actually, "znoszę" is almost never used ("znosić" means something like "(to be able) to stand"), but I think that you'd rather exactly say "mogę znieść", "jestem w stanie znieść", which will be rarely said anyway.
"Nie znoszę" is exactly "I can't stand", which is close enough to "I hate".
