You can prepare and paint the chrome that way. I would make sure I get all of the blueish chrome and leave the yellowish nickel behind.
Roughen the nickel evenly with fine sandpaper to get the best surface for adhesion of the primer. If you have some power sanding equipment, it would speed up the job, since chromium is pretty hard.
Plating is expensive, but worth it for some people.
