nailing carpet trim in concrete

I laid carpet tiles around my furnace in the basement (I left a wide border around the furnance) and would like to use metal carpet trim around the edges of the carpet. The trim will have to be nailed into concrete, so of course I can't use the decorative spiral-shank screws supplied with the trim.

Is there any way to do this besides pre-drilling holes in the concrete with a hammer drill, plugging them with wood dowel plugs and then using the supplied carpet screws? Is there any masonry screw or nail I can use that is made for this purpose--in other words, one that will look good with this trim? Thank you.

you can drill and plug to put the metal in, or you can use a gripper metal. Gripper metal is blind nailed so to speak.
