glass mosaic thinset

My kerdi shower kit will not be arriving until thursday so I have begun to tile the floors and walls leading up to the shower enclosure. I plan to run a border of glass mosaic tile extending from the walls and in to the shower.The thinset that I used on the floor is versabond premium white. If I have to go with unmodified in the shower, will it matter if I use the versabond behind the glass mosaic on the outer walls ? Also, the walls are textured. I have sanded them somewhat to get the extreme high spots down, will 2x12 strips of 1 inch mosaic lay alright over the slight texture ?

It won't matter if you use the versabond outside the shower. It will be fine. How much texture is there. I would get it as close to flat as possible. If that isn't possible, i would bring the whole area to the same plane, maybe flash it in with some thinset.
