Default [Q] Status and Nav Bar Fading?

If you look closely at these screenshots (http://imgur.com/a/ZxQJC), the icons and buttons are fully white when the nav and status bars are transparent. However when they aren't, the buttons fade to about 70% and to a grey.
Is there any way (preferably with xposed) to keep these buttons and icons opaque all the time?
