Post a pic and lets see?
Chrome looks colder and highly reflective. As other posts, Nickel a bit warmer and a faint yellow tint, and if old, slightly duller. Fnd a kithen utensil, toaster kettle, these will be chrome, as will car bumper or a Harley bike.. Aged chrome 'pits' and looks crap. Nickel dulls and tarnishes, which can look nice.
Top of pic is chrome...
