This is certainly an improvement on the first proposal

-1. Firstly I don't see the necessity of this - I think the current icons
are excellent and strike a good balance between quick wayfinding and visual
noise. But even assmung its needed, this still is not a good way to go about
it. If you want duller icons, they need to be designed that way with a
different colour scheme and design requirements that takes this into
consideration. Doing an overall alpha blend is pretty heavy handed and
disregards the intention of the designer.
