Nickel is always plated over top of copper plating.
Nickel itself is not easy to plate and needs a foundation.

The old recipe for chrome was
   copper, nickel, chrome
  You had to plate 3 times to get chrome,
   since it practically doesn't stick to anything else but nickel.

Of course they are chrome plating pot metal and plastic now,
and I have no idea how.

     just the old stuff maam lol
        yours Scott
