Brushed nickel faucets are electroplated, which means that nickel is applied over brass. They shine less due to this nickel coating, because of which fingerprints and watermarks are not highlighted or visible on the faucet. During the 1930s, nickel went out of fashion because the coating started to come off; this problem was fixed using PVD or Physical Vapor Deposition technology. This technology makes the faucets costlier than the other types, but it has also made them of very good quality, meaning they hardly need to be repaired, and do not tarnish easily.
