Etymology: A compound expression coined by the brother of a young woman who hooked up with douchebag extraordinaire Jon Gosselin. This term utilizes the interjection "ick" followed by "nast", the abbreviated word of "nasty". The pause between the two words emphasizes the extreme emotions conveyed by the speaker, and distinguishes it from the adjectival form (below).
2. (adj.): "ick nast" - disgusting, repugnant; sketchy

2. (adj) Dude, that ick nast guy over there with the Ed Hardy shirts, hair plugs and diamond studded earring is hitting on 20-somethings. Shouldn't he be taking care of his 8 kids?
