You can try this...if you're right handed, paint the left side wall of the corner first...allow to dry a good day or two...longer is better though...apply a strip of vinyl line-writing tape (a plastic-type tape used for sharp lines and edges), get it at your paint store (ours is made by 'Cell-o-tape' and comes in 1/4 inch and 1/2 inch widths)...align the tape really well, press down the edges well, then apply some low-tack painter's tape over the vinly tape and around the left edge of the corner...(assuming this is an inside corner)...paint the right-hand wall, two thin coats to avoid bleeding and when the new paint is dry, remove the tape line from the left wall, pulling the tape away at an oblique angle...you may want to practise your technique on a closet wall or spare piece of drywall to get the knack first....hope this helps a little.
