CSS hover off transition not working

I am making navigation buttons for a portfolio website, hovering works perfectly but once the mouse hovers off, the button pops back to the original position instead of transitioning back slowly.

Here is the code:



li {
list-style-type: none;
margin: 20px 5px 0px 5px;
}
nav ul li a {
display: block;
margin: 30px 10px;
text-decoration: none !important;
text-align: center;
width: 90px;
padding: 6px 0;
border-radius: 4px;
-o-transition: all 300ms ease-in-out;
-ms-transition: all 300ms ease-in-out;
-webkit-transition: all 300ms ease-in-out;
-moz-transition: all 300ms ease-in-out;
transition: all 300ms ease-in-out;
background: #E6E5CC;
float: right;
top: 0px;
left: 0px;
}
nav ul li a:hover {
color: inherit;
position: relative;
top: 0px;
right: 0;
bottom: 0;
left: 0px;
top: -5px;
left: -5px;
box-shadow: 1px 1px 0px #e3e2c5, 2px 2px 0px #dfdebe, 3px 3px 0px #cbc995, 4px 4px 0px #b4b165, 5px 5px 0px #56542a;
background: #f7f6ee;
}
nav ul li a:active {
color: inherit;
top: 5px;
left: 5px;
box-shadow: 0px 0px 5px white;
}

<nav>
<ul>
<li>
<a href="#">Contact</a>
</li>
<li>
<a href="#">Projects</a>
</li>
<li>
<a href="#">Blog</a>
</li>
<li>
<a href="#">About</a>
</li>
</ul>
</nav>




Answer

Just set your nav ul li a to position: relative; and it will work as expected.

CSS

nav ul li a {
  position: relative;
}

li {
  list-style-type: none;
  margin: 20px 5px 0px 5px;
}
nav ul li a {
  display: block;
  margin: 30px 10px;
  text-decoration: none !important;
  text-align: center;
  width: 90px;
  padding: 6px 0;
  border-radius: 4px;
  -o-transition: all 300ms ease-in-out;
  -ms-transition: all 300ms ease-in-out;
  -webkit-transition: all 300ms ease-in-out;
  -moz-transition: all 300ms ease-in-out;
  transition: all 300ms ease-in-out;
  background: #E6E5CC;
  float: right;
  top: 0px;
  left: 0px;
  position: relative;
}
nav ul li a:hover {
  color: inherit;
  position: relative;
  top: 0px;
  right: 0;
  bottom: 0;
  left: 0px;
  top: -5px;
  left: -5px;
  box-shadow: 1px 1px 0px #e3e2c5, 2px 2px 0px #dfdebe, 3px 3px 0px #cbc995, 4px 4px 0px #b4b165, 5px 5px 0px #56542a;
  background: #f7f6ee;
}
nav ul li a:active {
  color: inherit;
  top: 5px;
  left: 5px;
  box-shadow: 0px 0px 5px white;
}
<nav>
  <ul>
    <li>
      <a href="#">Contact</a>
    </li>
    <li>
      <a href="#">Projects</a>
    </li>
    <li>
      <a href="#">Blog</a>
    </li>
    <li>
      <a href="#">About</a>
    </li>
  </ul>
</nav>
