Apply Bootstrap CSS Customizations

Hello community, I am a little confused with Bootstrap at the moment.

So I have added changes to the Bootstrap CSS by creating a folder called style.css. I have changed some of Bootstraps default CSS, here is an example:

.navbar-nav > li:last-child{
    border-right: 1px solid #475d88;

That uses Bootstrap classes to change the nav.

If I now use these classes to create another navbar on the page I will be left with the changes from my other navbar. How can I make multiple changes without affecting other elements?

An easy workaround to this problem, and others like it, is to create a class just for the element you want to select.

For example is this is the navigation at the top of page creating a .navtop class for specific stylings to that element.
