My padding will not set correctly, what am I doing wrong?

nav ul { margin: 0 10px 0 10px; padding: 0; text-decoration: none; } nav li { display: inline-block; font-weight: 800; padding: 15px 10px 15px 10px;

}

css/main.css
a {
  text-decoration: none;
}

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;
}

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;
}

h1, h2 {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a:hover {
  color: #32673f;
}

h1 {
  font-family: Changa One, sans-serif;
  font-size: 1.75em;
  font-weight: normal;
}

img {
  max-width: 100%;
}

#gallery {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  list-style: none;
}

#gallery li {
  float: left;
  width: 45%;
  margin: 2.5%;
  background-color: #f5f5f5;
  color: #bdc3c7;
}

nav ul {
  margin: 0 10px 0 10px;
  padding: 0;
  text-decoration: none;
}
nav li {
  display: inline-block;
  font-weight: 800;
  padding: 15px 10px 15px 10px;

}

It looks like the padding needs to be added to the anchor tags within the list items rather than the list item itself. Try using this selector and it should do the trick.

nav ul li a {

}
