bullnose on vertical edge, cement board edge?

I'm tiling a wall up to an outside corner. I want to end with bullnose along the vertical edge. Do I cutback my cement board (Hardibacker) at the edge to allow the bull nose to wrap around?
The other side of the edge will be sheetrock & paint.

I think I need the Hardibacker to end about a half inch before the edge.

Bullnose has one curved finished side and a flat back. I'm not sure what you are talking about when you say wrap around. Do you have bullnose, or mud caps or something else?

Sorry, not bullnose, but probably quarter round strips.
I have a vertical edge corner on a wall, tile on one side, sheetrock on the other. I was thinking of having a rounded edge transition. I could also use the long edge strips (plastic or metal), but I don't think it will look as good. I think my real question was about how close to bring the Hardibacker to a vertical wall edge, and maybe that depends on what tile or edge product I'm using at the edge.

The cement board should go all the way to the edge of the sheetrock. Does your tile not come with bullnose?

Yes, I can use bullnose at the edge. But I was thinking of using something with a larger radius, and wrap around the corner a little. Thanks for the advice to take the cement board all the way to the edge.

I'm not a tile guy and I'm not sure of the correct terminology but I think there is a communication error. There are 2 types of bullnose [if that's the right term] one curves and stops on a flat surface [where the cement board and drywall are level] and another bullnose that has a 1/2" lip the covers the edge when the cement board is a 1/2" higher than the painted wall.

Hope I got that spit out well enough to make sense

Yeah, I was planning to use the second type, with the larger turn radius. And my original question was if I should take the Hardibacker to the edge or not.

Ya, that's what I was referring too

I've painted up against miles of tile but never installed any except on my own home
