It looks like Chic probably prettied up Sue's eyes—similar to what Mike Royer did to Big Barda's face on the splash page to Mister Miracle #5—not that I'm complaining! (After all, it is a pin-up!)
I always loved how the King drew such elegant, tapering fingers on his women, and here is a standout example. And there's no other way to put it: It's FANTASTIC that you can see Sue's finger nails through her gloves!
Nothing fantastic there, just your regular unstable molecules fabric… That's common knowledge!
Well that explains it! The unstable molecules allowed her to make her nails visible through the costume. She probably just had them done for the pinup. Good thing she limited her costume's invisibility to her nails, otherwise she could have had some trouble with the Comics Code folks.
