It’s not easy being a mom, but if you’re London-born designer, actress, and mom-of-three Rosie Pope – you make it look blissfully simple. How does she do it (and look flawless while she’s at it)? We asked her a few questions to find out.

Q: What’s the rule on nail polish color this season? Toes only? Fingers only? Matching toes & fingers? – Shawn F.
A: We love mixing up fingers and toes, but we try to keep the colors in the same family. Spring for a coral on your fingers and a hot pink on your toes, or try a ballet slipper pink paired with cherry red.
