One way is by appearance of the color.
Nickel typically has a slight "yellowish" color that's usually readily apparent when compared to something known to be stainless steel.
A kitchen utensil will do.
Stainless steel has a "white" color with no yellowish tint.
Compare a stainless item to bright nickel and the color tint is obvious.
Another way to tell in this case is that a stainless steel slide will only be bright polished outside.
The inside of the slide will be dull.
A bright nickel slide will also be bright inside because it's a shiny plating.
