The Nernst equation relates the energy of a cell outside of standard conditions when the concentrations of the products and reactants change to energy in standard conditions. So, when there is a change in concentration, use the Nernst equation.
You'd use it to relate the reduction potential (under non-standard conditions) to the standard electrode potential. At any point in the reaction, you can find the cell potential using this equation.
