Hover on navbar link not working on all pages

I have two navbars set up. One is on the home page with animations and the other is used for inside pages without any animations. I can’t figure out how to get the hover color to stick for the inside pages.

The home page has hover effects and they work fine but the inside pages don’t react. I have a feeling it has something to do with the VISITED state but if I remove that completely it reverts to a gray color I never selected (I think?) I’ve even added a new link to the navbar and set the same class from the home page navbar and it works in Webflow’s preview but not on the staging site.
