Removing scratches in polished nickel faucets


I recently had polished nickel fixtures installed in my bathroom (both sink and shower) and after the plumber left I noticed some scratches on the faucet for the sink. Is there anything I can do to soften them or cover up?

Thank you.

It's all about the polishing, the easiest way would be to get a multitool (Dremelamazoninfo) and a few jeweler's polishing wheels (they make them for multitools).

Otherwise, remove the faucet, hand sand with 300, 600, then 1200 wet sandpaper (use oil instead of water). Next if you have a bench grinder or angle grinder use a buffing wheel with white rouge amazoninfo, to get a rough polish, then move on to a finer rouge.
