Her fingers ( leave out a blur of colour ) it gives the impression that all her fingers are different colours (  I know you mean her nails )... just go with blur maybe.

Set the heading apart from the rest of the paragraph (maybe even center it) and start the next paragraph with "The news." I think this will bring the message across and gives a better hook.

"answer" is an echo word to the sentence before. "drifts through the receiver" maybe?

How about( he exhales loudly) or he exhales long and loud, sounds less sticky than a long breath because a long exhale is a breath, something like that?
