Finally, give .icon a timing function that will gradually start and stop its transition?

I tried to use the shorthand method but it task 3 ended up not passing as a result. So I used the long method. But it hasn't yielded any real results.

/* nav-item transitions ---------- */

.nav-item {
    flex-grow: 1;
  transition: flex-grow .5s;

.nav-item:hover {
    flex-grow: 2;

/* nav icon transitions ---------- */
  right: -25px;
  transition-property: right;
  transition-duration: .4s;
  transition-delay: .3s;
  transition-timing-function: ease-in-out;

.nav-item:hover .icon {
    right: 12%;
  transition-delay: .3s;

It looks like you did a little bit too much.

The shorthand would probably be just fine. But you did something extra that the challenge did not ask for. In the rule for "nav-item:hover .icon" you added a transition-delay setting. Just remove that and you should pass the challenge.
