Nip is a derogatory word for a Japanese person. It is derived from "Nippon" (mispronounced with a short "i" sound), the Japanese term for Japan. Usage in this context probably peaked around the time of World War II. It is seldom used this way today. Heard frequently on the WWII-based sitcom McHale's Navy.
Nip can also refer to a small quantity (mostly of a drink), such as a shot of liquor. In relation to spirits it tends to refer to a small, unmeasured quantity, but in Britain a nip of beer is specifically defined as a third of a pint (189ml). This is one of the three legal sizes for draught beer glasses; it was formerly used for very strong beer but is now rarely seen.
Nip is also used as part of the expression nip and tuck, originally a close contest, but now more often a slang reference to plastic surgery. See Nip/Tuck for the television series.
Possibly the most common modern usage is in the expression nipped in the bud, a reference to something ended before it reached its full potential. Example: The athlete's career was nipped in the bud by major injuries.
to nip is a verb meaning something along the lines of 'to move quickly, but not very far', such as in the phrase "I'll just nip next door".

By extension of the meaning of the last two above, nippy or nipster can mean either chilly or quick, depending on the context, used in a sentence: "It's nippy outside today!" or "It's nipster!"
