Alexandre, you've hurt my feelings.  My feijoada is not nasty.  Of course, you have to be a real man to eat it.  (Maybe you've been talking to former dinner guests who are Gremistas.)  The secret is using four day old quati meat, some roadkill (any variety as long as the smell and taste are there), and just a pinch of sundried anaconda.

 

"Nasty" is often applied to the weather.

I hear that we're in for (we can expect, we will have) some nasty weather this week. 

In this context, nasty weather would be terrible weather.

 

I heard a doctor refer to melanoma as "nasty stuff".  By that he meant dangerous, deadly, etc.
