Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dl56 Bad stuff
My daughter bought this paint to repurpose a glass lamp. The nozzle splattered all over and ran down the side of the lamp. Very poor coverage. It stuck to the newspaper she put under the lamp to protect the patio and when she pulled it off the paint peeled off of the lamp. A real hot mess. She used over half the can and did not get adequate coverage.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nicole Bad with chrome
I love Rustoleum spray paint. I do NOT love this color SATIN NICKEL. I was looking for a color to go with my other chrome fixtures and this was not it. If you want a nickel color buy this spray paint in FLAT ANTIQUE NICKEL. I also want to add that one can stopped spraying after a few squirts. So make sure you buy a couple so you can return the cans with bad nozzles

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by taximom212 I HATE these nozzless
First of all. I love to spray paint stuff. I use it all the time. So I do know how to shake and spray a can. When they came out with this new and improved nozzle/handle, I thought, GREAT! Easier to use...but alas, so far, I have about a 50% rate of return as half of them won't spray. Most of the other half leak and get all over my hands. It's really frustrating. Someone needs to do some quality control on this hot mess. I always try to get the old fashioned spray paint with the old fashioned nozzles when I can now. However, they have made many of the "good" colors in this type of can. Grrr!
Here is a picture of my hand after today's adventure. You will see that the paint can did spray! And it leaked from the bottom of the nozzle all over my hands.

I bought this to match brushed nickel hardware. I did notice the sparkly cap, but I figured that it was made that way to mimic the shininess of metal.
The paint looks exactly like the cap, except with much more glitter. If you are painting a unicorn's horn, stenciling letters on a supportive sign for a rally, or touching up a pair of platform shoes, this is great. If you are repainting bathroom or kitchen hardware, not so much.
I also ran into the drippy, leaky nozzle. Fortunately, it only got all over my shoes and somehow missed the rest of me when I was shaking it. I have not experienced the nozzle clog issue that others have had.
I ended up digging into my modelling stash and using Model Masters Metalizer Lacquer in Aluminum Plate. If you have a hobby shop around you, this stuff is much closer to a nickel finish without all of the glitter. You can also buff it after it dries to whatever shine you need it to be.

This is by far the absolute worst spray nozzle I have ever experienced. It leaks and drips all over the sprayer's hand and wastes paint, but that's not the worst!
This spray splattered drops of paint, which completely ruined the job. I now have to let all the paint dry completely so that I can sand it off. Now then, I'm out the money for the paint, and an hour of my time due to a faulty product.
Unfortunately, this is not an isolated case. I have been fooled before by this Rustoleum line of paint, and every time the sprayer fails! You might wonder why I keep getting fooled by this, and all I can say is that I thought they MUST have fixed it by now! But NO, they have not, and I will never, EVER again trust this product. I too do a lot of painting and know what I'm doing, so this is not coming from a person who doesn't understand how to use a rattle can.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Poor Quality spray
I tried several different cans and they all had the same issues -They splatter when you start spraying- you must start spaying away from your work and then move to your work while spraying. - which wastes an already overpriced painy. Even if you clean the nozzle as instructed after each use. I had one can that splattered so bad i could only use it updside down. The spray handle - though it looks well engineered - it is not very ergonomic. If you use more than one can - your hand will start to hurt. The can looks very impressive but results not much different than other all purpose spray paints that are 20 - 30% lower cost

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DIYgirl Glitter probably clogs the tube…4 cans later and still no finished project
I had used other Rustoleum products (aged bronze) with beautiful results. I bought two cans of Satin Nickel to paint a red metal TV cabinet. I primed the cabinet first with gray primer just to be safe. The first can of Rustoleum didn't spray at all after removing the red clip. The second can sprayed at first but once I released the level to spray a different surface, it stopped too! So off I went to Home Depot to exchange the first can and buy two more. Same thing! The sales associate said that the primer tends to get stuck in the tube. I think it's probably all the glitter in the paint…yes, glitter! When did nickel become glittery? So I'll make another trip to HD and buy another non-glittery color and hope that it covers the 2-foot section I was able to paint before.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Wonderful paint and great coverage
I painted a dark wood drop down secretary desk I am using as a vanity. I painted the interior with this Satin Nickel. I painted the exterior in Soft Iron.
After several light coats, and waiting for a bit in between coats to dry some, the interior was finished and I let it sit in the garage for a day, then brought it in the house and let it sit for a day to complete drying, just so it wouldn't peel. I have been using it for the past week and love the results.
