I am wondering if you used a heat gun on the edge if you can roll it over into a bullnose.  Experiment. 

Too much heat will melt it.  Too little will prevent the forming of the edge.  A smooth round pipe rubbed over the edge will form the bull nose.  I think it is worth a try.

Cooler, I’m using the standard vinyl or rubber cove base, not flooring.

Ah.  Most of these are self adhesive.  Running a small bead of silicone parallel to the adhesive will guarantee permanent adhesion.  The self-stick will act as a "clamp" and the silicone adhesive will give a permanent bond.

Well, I watched a few videos how to do corners, naturally not as easy as it looks.

I started in the bathrooms, got some practice overall came out pretty nice.  My only big mistake is right behind the toilet, so.....

I've got about 150' more to run.

But man its hard on the knees and back!!

Most of these companies make pre-formed inside and outside corners.  But that means extra seams.  When I used these there were just straight runs.  So no help from me.

This video shows the use of a "groover" for making the bends:

This is probably a leather groover made by C.S. Osborne.  And available from Amazon.com.
