It's fine. Just do it gently, and not as a "punishment" but as a "wind down" period. The first choice is to just say "OUCH!!!" in a loudy, high-pitched voice, (even if it didn't hurt) and walk away from her. But if she is relentless, (some puppies are!) it's fine to enforce the separation when she gets nippy. Keep it short, but be consistent about putting her back every time she doesn't respond to your first "Ouch!".
