Make Straight Grouting Line along with the End Tiles?

I just noticed that other people's tiles have a finished LOOK, while mine doesn't!

I did not grout the very top tiles or the side-end tiles. That's why my tiling looks unfinished and raw....

How do you make a straight line of grout on the very top and the side? Thanks

The best option is to cap off the top or side with a bullnose version of your tile. There are also metal edging pieces you can put on the end that round the edge down to meet the wall (kind of like a mini-quarter round).

Oh, yes, that's right! I have seen bullnoses before. Thanks
