Default Headlight Issue

Hey guys, quick question. My driver side headlight on my maxima turns almost purple when the lights come on. it starts out light blue (factory color) then turns light purple. Would you say the hid ballast is going bad on that side? just wanting to make sure before I change it. Thanks in advance!

Its the bulbs, ballast just powers it up, the color is dependent on the bulb and its life.
