What nail size is correct for 3/4" 1/4 round?

I have just finished installing laminate flooring and am ready to install the 3/4" 1/4 round. The 1/4 round will be nailed to 1/2" baseboard. I am thinking of using 1 1/4" 18 gauge nails. Is this correct? Should it be 16 gauge? Should it be longer nails?

If you are just shooting into the wood base I would use 1 1/4 - 1 1/2" 18 ga brads.
