You tape the edge of the corner bead as you would any other flat joint.

With paper tape, apply a mud bed, set the tape, lay off, top coat, finish coat, finish coat.

With mesh tape, set tape, top coat, finish coat, finish coat.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.
