You didn't close your nav tag. The 2nd nav tag should look like this...

</nav>

Good luck!

Hie thanks for your response. I closed the 2nd nav tag as you said but still am failing.

You must add the nav tag with the ul after the closing a tag. It´s a bit tricky they wan´t the nav after link an the a tag incudes h1 and h2

 <header>
      <a href="index.html">
        <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
        <h2>Designer</h2>
      </a>
      <nav>
          <ul>
          </ul>
        </nav>
    </header>
