For a fun look at the subtle distinctions between signs compare "gray" to "anyway".

For "gray", it seems to me that the fingers of the open 5 hands pass through each other (the idea is a mixing of colors - black and white), while with "anyway" the fingers of each hand lightly slap the back of each other in turn. 

For a word related to "anyway" see "easy/simple". The gesture in "easy" is compounded in the gesture of "anyway".
