The internet is divided yet again – this time over a simple photo of a manicure.

Social media users have been left baffled after someone posted an image to a popular Facebook group of the nail shade she wanted, asking what colour everyone thought it was.

This left thousands in a heated discussion, struggling to decide whether the nail shade was white or blue.

The debate was likened to the infamous white and gold or black and blue dress that caused a meltdown on the internet in 2015.

Amid the confusion, some internet users decided to be the next Sherlock Holmes and track down the source of the image – which turned out to be from a Russian nail salon.

Finally, the colour was confirmed by the majority as a ‘very light blue.’

In the hit post, the woman wrote that she was confused because all she saw was ‘a basic white polish’ but looked at the comments and ‘people are saying its a blue or grey shade?’

The question resulted in endless responses, with most agreeing the nail polish was white.

‘To me it looks to be a white polish which was made from a blue or grey base colour,’ one user says.

Another advised people to ‘turn the brightness all the way up’ to reveal the white colour.

A third was in dismay after realising it’s the same as the infamous dress back in 2015.

On the other hand, some people went rogue and thought there was a pink, or even red, tinge.

‘Are we all looking at the same picture? Those nails are definitely painted pink,’ one user says.

However others argued to it was a light blue hue – and they turned out to be right when someone found a photo of the same manicure from a different angle.

Eventually, the name of the confusing nail polish was revealed – a light blue by Luxio in the shade Breathless.

‘I went onto their page because I needed to know the real answer,’ wrote one determined user.

Blake Lively is back on Instagram and already serving us some major nail-art inspiration. The actor attended the Michael Kors fall/winter 2022 New York Fashion Week show looking fresh in a powder-blue three-piece suit and a subtle french manicure worth adding to all your mood boards.

Lively's nail artist Elle Gerstein posted an up-close picture of her elevated '90s-supermodel nails with what Gerstein calls a "polar moon" design, giving the look a reverse french manicure feel. Gerstein used the Luxio by Akzentz gel nail polish in Forever ($17) for the warm pastel-pink base, and while she didn't share the polish used for the nail art, Luxio's Aloof ($17) is a milky-white shade of the same line you could use to create a similar effect.

With french manicures continuing as a strong nail-art trend in 2022, Lively's take feels like a subtle (yet sweet) approach that takes it to the next level. Her reverse french nail art, while simple, adds a special touch that takes the look from just a trend to an intentional style choice. With how simple her nail art is to re-create, we may have just found our next DIY nail project. Take a closer look at Lively's nails below.
