Colors can take on a completely different look once placed on a wall.  I don't think adding an additional coat will change the color or perception all that much.  The color you are referring to does have a "pink" overtone to it - so in certain light may appear to be "bright".

I recommend picking a new color and painting over the two coats that you already applied.  It may not be possible to manipulate the existing paint and darken it while a portion is missing from the can.

 

Hope this helps.
