drywall finishing

Only time will tell---you're finished?

I say prime and paint and deal with any problems when they arise.

drywall finishing

Topping, lightweight, and easysand don't have the stickiness that all purpose does. You can have tape failure where it separates from the joint. Like oh'Mike said, not much you can do about it now. Fix any issues if and when they occur.
