drywall and liquid nails / Counter sinking...

If I don't have a stud to hit can I use liquid nails? I know it is not right but I have the drywall up and the end of the drywall doesn't land on a stud. So could I use some liquid nails or something to adhere it to the wall?


If the screws isn't counter sunk can I use a nail set or should I just take it out?

It would be best to have the ends of the rock land on a stud but i suppose since your laminating over existing rock it might be ok to secure it with liquid nail. Not ideal but....

If the screw/nail hasn't hit a stud it should be removed.
