    Wink nuance

    They all seem to look alike with little differences.

    Can I use the word nuance to substitute for the underlined word?

    Re: nuance

    'Nuance' us often used for small difference in attitude, performance, opinion, etc. I wouldn't use it for physical differences.

    * Is nuance used here correctly?
    * Is this a good sentence?
