Problem is Valerie is that the thumbs actually do touch the chest and the pinkies move in a circle while the thumbs stay in one place.  Think wings actually attached to the body.  This is the sign for Angel.  
The pinkies move in a circle, it is an arm in motion, but the thumbs actually stay stuck to the chest.

Hello SignWriting List!
I hope you all had a good weekend. I enjoyed having a little rest 
from answering email ;-)))

But I am happy to be back too.

And thank you for this excellent video Lucyna.

This sign for ANIOL in Polish Sign Language does NOT use Wrist 
Circles. In the video, the circles are from the whole arm...the wrist 
joint is not doing the circle.

A Wrist Circle symbol is only used when the arm never moves, and only 
the Hand moves, from the Wrist joint. So you need Arm-Circle 
symbols...Here is how I would write it. No need for contact stars, 
since I see no actual touching in the video. I will post information 
about Circle symbols next message...

Notice in my writing, that the arrowheads in the circle are placed at 
the exact spot where the hands start to move in the circle...The 
arrowheads are always placed where the circle begins....see attached
