Sephora Disney Jasmine Compact Mirror Review & Nail Art!

Hey guys! Since my Sephora Cinderella compact-inspired nail art went over so well, I decided to create some with it's Jasmine-themed predecessor too! The compact, like the Cinderella one, is a fantastic product. 


It comes packaged in a magenta and gold box with a plastic front that allows you to view the compact inside. Perhaps one of my favorite parts of the packaging though is the bar codes on the back of the boxes. This one is shaped like the Sultan's palace in Agrabah, but each product has a different shape as it's bar code.


When you take the compact out of it's package and open it up, you'll see the two mirrors: one is magnified and one is regular. The top mirror has the quote "shut your eyes and take a chance" written in gold along it's bottom edge.


But the top is the most beautiful and intricate part of the compact. A gold filigree that culminates in two genie lamps in the center are placed over a pink and purple rendition of the city of Agrabah from the movie. The pops of turquoise enamel are the perfect accents.


For my nails, I used a base of Zoya Lara and sponged and stamped over that with Zoya Areej. I used Zoya Ziv to hand paint the gold design on top.


Here is the design with a matte top coat applied over it. Which way do you prefer the design? I think I like it better glossy!


Unfortunately, this compact sold out pretty quickly in stores and online. If you are willing to pay for it though, you can still find it on eBay and possibly Amazon. While I know that plenty of people bought these mirrors with the intention of actually using them, I have mine tucked away safely in it's box on display in my nail polish room. You know I must collect (err... hoard) anything Disney!

The products in this post were provided for my honest review.
