    Default Nexus 4: Translucent Bars

    Is there any other way in getting Translucent Bars without the GEL as the only reason to that is that is it gives you big icons with low resolution, also I am unsure if launchers like Apex and Nova waste a lot of battery? Otherwise I would use them.

    You can use the Xposed Framework if your device is rooted. See this thread: [Guide] Getting started with Xposed Framework

    As for using other launchers, you shouldn't see a significant increase in battery usage. I've used Apex, Nova, ADW, Action, Aviate, and other launchers, and the only battery drain I noticed corresponded directly with media-rich widgets or location/network access (for example, in Aviate) — which is to be expected. I think that, at least in some cases, those reporting increased battery usage after switching to a third-party launcher are actually seeing the result of interacting with their launcher in different ways (after all, most launchers have different features and options).

    Action Launcher does it, and it doesn't use any more battery than the standard launcher.
