Hey guys

So I recently renovated the master bath and I skim coated the wall where the old glued on mirror used to be.  I vacuumed and tack clothed the wall before priming with Benjamin Moore fresh start (tinted grey) then painted with Aura bath and spa

Prime and paint was about a week and a half ago.  

I noticed that yellow frog tape pull paint in areas were I compounded.  My concern is that I had a new mirror put in the place of the old mirror and although there is a j channel in the bottom for support I’m worried that the mirror would pull from the wall.

Also,  I fixed some nail holes I made the day before the new mirror install and used a heat gun and paint same day.  These was in a few small spots behind where the new mirror sits.

What do you all think?

If that bottom rail doesn't have a mechanical fastener I'd be worried too.

The bottom rail is screwed into 4 studs, the top rail is just glued in place for looks.  Also, maybe in my favor, the wall isn’t plumb by an 1/8 of an inch or so inward as you move up the wall

You're probably fine.

one or two small mirror clips would help you sleep at night.
