Do you have a sink and vanity top that is all one unit?

I would go with caulk if it is all one unit.

Agree with Redline,

DO NOT use liquid nail....use the Silicone caulking (waterproof, standard practice for installing a sink)

If your sink were ever damaged and needed to be replaced, All you have to do is cut the silicone bead with a knife and remove. Not so with liquid nail....

Hello Everyone,

The vanity and sink came in one box. It was a good price! It's going into the half bathroom that I'm finally finishing.

Thanks for the answers!

Allen

Allen if you haven't already done this, which you probably have, you can get color-match caulking for the install for times where you might see a little of it. You can match the vanity top color w/ the sealant.
