More then one number in nth-child?

Is it possible to select multiply numbers with nth-child pseudo-class? For instance I would like to select item 3 and item 6.

        <li>Item 1</li>
        <li>Item 2</li>
        <li>Item 3</li>
        <li>Item 4</li>
        <li>Item 5</li>
        <li>Item 6</li>
        <li>Item 7</li>
        <li>Item 8</li>
        <li>Item 9</li>
        <li>Item 10</li>        
li:nth-child(6, 3)  {
 background:  #52bab3;
  color: #fff ;

you can just make two selectors, one for 3 and one for 6

li:nth-child(3), li:nth-child(6)

or using negative numbers you can start at any item and go backwards toward the start, and just start at 6 and apply to every 3rd item, so it would be 6 and 3.

Thank you James!
