you want to get both hands in the shot, how about adding some more interesting angles, like tilting your picture so that the hands are at top and bottom instead of the sides? This is a cool way to make sure your pictures all look different.
I like the design of this but not the putty greige colour. I think a nice nude would be preferable, if going for that kind of look, or else a lovely shade of pink/blue/mauve would be prettier alternatives. But the manucure design itself I love.
