I found some tile I'd like to use for sink backsplashes that isn't made with a bullnose option. I figure that rather than leave the unfinished edge of the tile exposed and try to paint that, when grouting I can make a fillet of grout between the wall and the glazed surface of the tile, then paint the grout fillet to match the wall with a tiny artist's brush, which should leave a less dirt-trapping angle and look neater. I'll be using a bathroom-suiitable paint: Sherwin-Williams Duration or something similar.

Any obvious problems with this? Would it be better to paint the grout before or after sealing it for adhesion?

No need to seal the grout if you intend to apply paint over it. Paint adheres fine to grout but once painted it will need to be painted again later on.
