I added few touches to this, I made the popup menus more rounded added a little blue to the calendar, darkened and changed folder icons. Changed the top bar color to match the gtk grey colors.
I changed the the message tray, hotplug, and chat to use the black transparent. So it looks like the popups on the top panel (meaning it looks like the calendar when you click on it.) I also changed the overview removing the border around the work spaces. I think it looks cleaner. I decided to upload it as a shell theme. All feedback is welcome good or bad
I decided to release this as a theme, you can download it now. I forgot to mention this theme has a nice gdm theme with it that I modified
I updated the mintmenu by changing the scrollbar to grey and few other mods. If you want this as a shell theme let me know thanks
