Best way to end mosaic tile on an outside corner

Am doing a project involving 12 x 12 mesh backed 1" mosaic tiles which will end on an outside corner.

Should the side edge of the tile be flush with the corner and grouted or is there a better way to handle this type of tile at the outside corner?

Thanks for your help

Use metal finish strips embedded in the thinset/mastic.

Looking at them in person will give you a better idea of the size and color you want.

Re: Best way to end mosaic tile on an outside corner

You could also check and see if the tile manufacturer makes a matching bullnose tile, something like a 3" x 12". Then use those to frame in the mosaic tile. Run it up the wall right next to the edge of the corner, across the top. If they have a bullnose that has a finished edge on both the top edge of the tile and one short edge, use those for the corners. If they don't, miter cut them.
