I humbly feel that you were lucid and the awareness of your hands in your dreams was enough to make it so. It was just that your attention seemed to be more focused on what your hands should look like...
keep at it for sure seems like progress
But that doesn't always work either.
A few days ago, I had an OBE type lucid dream and felt very real. Much like a false awakening after the vibrations, and buzzing and all those weird sensations. I was pretty sure I was dreaming, but it was so real, I also thought I may have been sleep walking. My 'go to' RC is to make something move, and it doesn't work sometimes when the dream is very real.
What I did is, I simply got up from bed and walked out of my room, (awake or not), it didn't matter. I wasn't doing anything to harm myself. Then I went to my front door and opened it and looked out. Then I knew immediately it was a dream because I saw farm land and rolling hills. Nothing like my actual neighborhood. I then saw a small evergreen tree and mentally plucked it from the ground (making an object move) and then it worked and I was now positive I was dreaming.
So if it happens again, and you are already walking around, (going to a window for more light), try turning on your light, leave your room, walk around the house, look out the window or front door. Something is bound to be out of place and help you realize. And as long as you don't do anything foolish, the only downside is the possibility of being embarrassed. (It's hard to explain to others: "I could have sworn I was dreaming, but I just had to walk around the house to make sure." But that's all I or you would be doing and no harm done). Just embarrassment, but as of yet I have never 'lucid slept walked' even though it truly feels that way sometimes.
I didn't answer the question though and that's because I don't know. What reality check CAN you do in the dark? Internal mental logic ones are unreliable. (How did I get here? I just woke up, that's why. And sometimes we come up with false memories or crazy logic to justify how we got here or why there is a chimpanzee at the window (true dream story. There was a monkey at my window and I didn't find it odd at all)). SO I am curious and I'll try and think of one myself.
What's the best RC to use without the need for vision?

That's a good one. I've actually never done that, but I've heard about it many times before.
I was thinking about this problem more and basically we/you need to do something that uses other senses instead of just sight. Looks can be deceiving. In fact ALL senses can be.
So the breathing test is a good one. It defies the laws of physics so easily and simply without the need for visual cues. I should get in the practice of doing that.
