Bad idea: You could conceivably dislocate your nose (requiring that it be fractured and set), and at any rate you might cause inflammation of cartilage that could be very unpleasant. Even the sound of knuckle cracking freaks some people out. If they saw (and heard) you cracking your nose you might get punched in it!
