    Story about painted miniature designs on fingernails.

    Mr Arthur Ferrier - the well known artist - paints the nails of Miss Frances Carson - actress in "Havoc". The setting is an opulent drawing room. Miss Carson is dressed in an extravagant silver dress and cape with ostrich feathers. Extremely glamorous! She hands Mr Ferrier a piece of paper showing the designs she requires on her nails. C/U of the paper showing the following images drawn onto nails: a love-heart, a man's face, a diamond, a horseshoe and a question-mark. The artist takes Miss Carson's cape and she sits on a sofa which is high on a platform. Mr Ferrier kneels at her feet and proceeds to paint the designs on her nails. C/U of him painting on the nails. C/U of Miss Carson laughing. She admires her nails. C/U of the nails under a magnifying glass. Very cute.
