Essie ‘Blue Moon’ Halloween 2020 Collection – Swatches & Review

Behind the Scenes: I’m actually finishing up this review on December 6th. As mentioned too many times, I’m slowly catching up on a backlog of posts that built up when I took an unexpected couple of months break from blogging (and then I adjust the date to show when they were posted on Instagram – def follow my Insta as that’s more caught up). 90% of the polishes I review are still available to purchase (I don’t love to review SUPER limited edition things) but this is one post where it might be hard or almost impossible to find the shades at the point I’m writing! But I still wanted to get it posted up! I have the swatches, I don’t want them to go to waste. There’s a chance you can find these in certain target stores, or in a destash, so just in case, here are swatches!

I’m a big supporter of brands releasing Halloween collections and I fully think there should be MORE. Yes, this is a campaign I throw myself entirely behind. And this year, along with China Glaze who usually brings out some sort of Halloween release, Essie did as well! We are truly blessed.

This is the Blue Moon collection and it contains 6 super shimmery and sparkly shades. I actually managed to grab 5 of the 6 shades off of Target’s website. HOWEVER, tragedy struck and the package with 2 of the shades just got lost, so somewhere out in the world those polishes are hanging out. I hope they’re happy.

SO we’re unfortunately only looking at 3 of the 6 today. This collection was popular and I can see why! The 3 shades I don’t have are ‘Once in a Blue Moon’, a deep navy base with larger silver flakes; ‘Like a Charm’, a deep teal base with stunning bright green shimmer; and ‘Broom with a View’, a more gray-toned blue with silver shimmer.

Alright, let’s look at the shades that actually managed to make it to my doorstep!
