Bot lane Nunu works as an attrition lane, slowly wearing out your opponent through large amounts of sustain(consume+spellvamp) and harass. Pushing can be accomplished through a variety of ways. Autos, harassing and zoning the opponent, Promote(which I decided not to run, explanation in a bit), and consume(should be used to counter and sustain through harass though).
I decided to run Garrision in the hopes that i would be assisted by the AD TF and/or Olaf, but that did not happen really. Garrison would have facilitated a tower dive once i had pushed you in, should TF decide to ult in. That was my thought anyway, did not happen. Promote would have been a better choice.
Slighty off topic: I am generally hesitant to play supports if i am not queue'd with a buddy who is playing a dps'er because a lot of your utility relies on your allies ability to use you (that sounds dirtier than i wanted it to be...). However, i have always wanted to try Nunu top with a competent ranged carry. Also, i am perpetually stuck in the bottom lane since no one seems to want it.
