    Bonding plaster to bring near flush with existing, let it take up for a couple of hours then a skim coat of finish.

    As ker-plunk, but ensure your finish corner bead is level with the existing plaster you want to work to.
    In the picture it looks a bit low.
    Put a straight edge or spirit level on the existing plaster and over the bead to check
