Simply so, what is the strongest construction adhesive?

The strongest adhesive by far was the Loctite PL Fast Grab Premium. It held 115 pounds on the wood block and 92 pounds on the PVC block.

Subsequently, question is, is Gorilla Glue the strongest glue? Gorilla Glue is a 100% waterproof glue, safe for indoor and outdoor use and strong enough to stand up to the elements. Incredibly strong, Gorilla Glue is known for its industrial holding power and versatility, regardless of the surface.

Just so, are Liquid Nails strong?

Will Gorilla Glue work on nails?

Gorilla glue won't work for applying false fingernails. When gorilla glue cures it expands and forms bubbles. This would raise the false nails off your own nails. It will squeeze out and get on your fingers and anything you touch.
