Use Nuance in a sentence

My daughter had Nuance as a vocabulary word for school - she's in sixth grade. Her assignment last night was to use that word in a sentence. Here is my answer:

"When it comes to comedy my teacher has a fairly nuanced wit.  How else do you explain these highfalutin vocabulary words?"

In the end she went with:
 
"I can see the nuance of each snowflake as it falls on a cool winter day."
 
 
I say she passes.
