The standard solution for this kind of issue when you don’t want to go
monochrome is to give the shapes a high contrast stroke color or
shadow. A 1.5px white line will do wonders to the visibility of that
dark gray on dark backgrounds.

Although in my opinion monochrome is good for this kind of widgets.
They do not need to draw attention, being only a decluttering device
and expanded by default.
