This year, Halloween will be more special than ever with the appearance of a rare blue moon.

While it is called a blue moon, the moon won't actually appear blue. The phrase refers to the time when a second full moon occurs in one month.

According to NASA, a blue moon occurs about seven times every 19 years.

To celebrate the rare occurrence, nail brand Essie has launched an out of this world collection.

The brand's Blue Moon 2020 Collection features six shimmery nail polishes perfect for Halloween night.

The shades include "Once in a Blue Moon," "So Stellar," "Payback’s a Witch," "Like a Charm" and "Broom with a View."
