Question PVC paint

I know you can't paint PVC, but what about the purple primer used before PVC cement?
I have bits of it showing around my couplings, is the primer going to leech into water?
If not, can I coat the entire pipe to make it look more uniform?

i believe you could use the krylon plastic paint. i would use 220 grit sand paper on the pipe first and then paint it.
If you put off what you can do today until tomorrow it will never get done cause tomorrow never comes. It's always today.
