Why is my white balance off? Nikon Z6

Hello, 

 

I hope someone can help solve this issue because it drives me MAD. My white balance is always off! It seems I cannot get my white balance right. The following images were photographed with a Speedlight. However, this also happens with natural light. I shoot with a Nikon Z6. I crank up the saturation in Lightroom to check where the blues, magentas, and purples are. See the attached images.

Your white balance isn't off.

 

There is very obvious mixed lighting here:

Also, don't forget that colored surfaces reflect a lot of light! That's why studios are always painted in neutral colors, and most photographers (myself included) will wear neutral clothing when doing delicate and color-critical work.
