I'm sorry,I don't see the items I need to click. This seemed like a good idea when I started.

Are all of her fingertips red?

When did this start?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I've noticed them on a number of occasions but I have a picture from a few days ago and they all look red on the one hand I can see. Probably has had this for maybe 6-8 months.

I sent pictures to your email. You wrote that you could give me a response if we could email. I am anxiously waiting to hear from you.

Thank you for sending the pictures.

Is it possible to send a picture with both of her hands side by side.

In the picture, I can only see her left hand clearly.
