Drywall Corner Imperfections..Pls Help

I installed a new drywall and found that the inside corner of the new wall with an existing wall (at 150 degrees) has some imperfections.
I had used a corner bead for the task, but didnt come out correct.
I did a first coat of primer (Behr new drywall primer and sealer)..
What can I do now to repair the corner to make the angle perfect ?

- Should I put a new corner bead and try again ?
- Can I do something with another type of joint compound (if available )

I plan to put textured finish paint on the drywall.. Would it hide these imperfections also ?

The wall is in my living room..Thats why I am this concerned..Pls help..

Is the corner twisted or what, not sure what you mean by "it didn't come out right. I shoot texture on and then paint over that with an airless setup, works & looks great. Yes texture will hide some imperfections, but can also highlight them. Hard to tell without seeing what you're seeing.
