I small drip of CA glue is probably as good as anything, and will be easier to
apply hundreds of time than epoxy would be.

But the problem here is that the
end of a brad has very little area for glue to adhere to, so I doubt that any
glue will greatly increase the strength of a properly-fitting push nut.

the end of the brad could be mushroomed a bit without damaging anything, that
might make it more secure.
