    quote; customer service said their stainless is a nickel finish

    My catalog ONLY shows the Brillance Stainless. No nickel, and their "white finish" appears to be "Artic Stainless". In most cases, Satin Nickel and Brushed Stainless are almost interchangeable, unless they are being installed next to each other. As a practical matter, there is no "standard" and if you mix manufacturers they will NOT match regardless of what you call the color.
