Nav element is wrapping at 660px, then re-aligns at 720px. Any ideas why this is happening?

My navigation consists of: Portfolio | About | Contact. At 660px, 'Contact' wraps under 'About'. Then it re-aligns at 720px. I do have a media query at 660px, so I'm assuming its something I'm missing within that. I'm new so any help would be greatly appreciated!

Added markdown to make the code easier to read.

I need your HTML, too. I think it would be a good idea to paste it all into a Pen at http://codepen.io and post a link to it, here, for people to play around with it.
