adhesive for gluing t-molding to polished concrete slab?

I've put down 5 pieces of t-molding with liquid nail, and those are working great. But the liquid nail won't hold my last piece. The concrete slab in this area is very polished, and the glue residue comes off the concrete with no effort. Is there a better product for this job?

I'd try to scarify the joint somewhat and use PL8x by Loctite. Liquid nails is basically for wood to wood contact. Adhesives have come a long way.

Success! I used a chisel to rough up the concrete and then applied Loctite PL 8x, as you suggested. I left some heavy books on it for 24 hours. It appears very solid. Thanks for the tip!
