Need help with CSS selector

I am trying to use a media query to change the color of the text "PRICE". But I'm having a problem finding the proper CSS selector to address .brandPrice.

<nav class="navbar-fixed-top">
                            <div class="containerFullBleed">
                                       <div class="rowFullBleed header">
                                             <div class="col-sm-12 text-center">
                                                  <p  class="logo"><span class="brandPrice">price</span><span class="brandLearman">learman</span>
                            <div class="containerFullBleed" id="brandHeader">
                                  <div class="rowFullBleed">
                                       <div class="col-sm-12">
                                            <p class="headerText  text-right">Full Site Coming Soon!<span class="paddingLeft50">Contact Us</span></p>

Open in new window

Maybe something like: nav ~ p span .brandPrice

Help would be greatly appreciated

are you saying that you cant just hit it directly?

.brandPrice {
  color: blue;

The direct approach doesn't work. Not sure why?

Check out a jsFiddle at:

it seems like @screen-xs-max is not linked.

I will keep working on this.  Your example does work, but has problems when using the Bootstrap media query (this was imported as an external resource in the fiddle example).  

I don't think the issue is with Bootstrap media query because other modifications (change the footer background color, for example) do work as expected.

I'm not a jsFiddle expert and their documentation is thin.  Maybe its possible that I haven't successively loaded bootstrap.min.css. But still, it isn't working in my code either.

My thought is that it must be some kind of convoluted selector that's required.
have you tried $screen instead of @screen?

I need to stay within the Bootstrap framework, so no I haven't tried modifying the media query.

OK I have tracked down the problem. My less files were being compiled to the wrong css... the right name but wrong directory.
