Nickel wire coils??
So I'm a adventurous spirit and I love trying out new  things and I heard about non resistance nickel wire coil building. What do you guys think about it? Dangerous or Nah? I would like to know before I heat up that wire and find out I shouldn't.

Basically zero resistance.

Personally I wouldn't. Nickel is too toxic for anything involving inhaling.

It may be carcinogenic too. It is often used as the legs of NR-R-NR wires where it won't get hot so presents no risk.

I don't think you can build coils with NR nickel wire. It's primarily in conjunction with resistance wire (Kanthal or Nichrome) to control where the heating takes place on the coil (to avoid hot legs etc)

I wouldn't recommend trying it either as you will likely end up with a direct short on your cell
