You'll know if you have a shit can or not. At least it's easy to sand and blend a portion back in... if you were using metallic flake or pearl paints.. good luck blending.
This is the best painting advice for any paint job. Another thing to add is that materials are cheap. So dont be a cheapscape and do a half ass job because you are afraid of wasting materials. Its best to do it right than to do it half assed.
