Painting over drywall bubble


Hey Guys,

Does anyone have a suggestion for a drywall joint that has slightly bubbled? I did not notice the bubble until I had already put 2 coats of primer on it. Also, if I can't fix the bubble, would white paint or beige paint hide this imperfection better?

FYI: This is a small one room job and as I live in a very rural area, I could not get a pro to even look at the job, hence why I am doing it myself.

Thank you.

Do what you can to fix the bubble. It will be well worth it. Lighter and flatter paint hide imperfections better.
