Bring it to a plater and they will dip it and it will come right off. 
Blasting is absolutely the wrong way to do it. It only pounds the nickel and 
or copper back into the surface.
If it has been copper plated you might have a problem getting it off. May 
have to be re plated (with acid copper) to provide a a good base for the 
nickel to polish up. Depending on what media you used it may have 
contaminated the surface so it would be impossible to get a good and safe 
finish when replating. If it is suspension parts, I would have them hydrogen 
TALK WITH YOUR PLATER and tell him what happened and let him suggest a way.
