Touch Up With a Roller

So, I'm painting in dark green color and two coats look pretty good (used high quality paints and a tinted primer); however, I've got some light spots around parts of the cut in. Part of this is due to my inexperience and I was stuck with gloopy paint due to the cold weather.

Anyways, I really don't want to go over the entire wall for a third coat, mostly because it will mean another $50 can of paint. Can I go over those spots, say with a mini roller and fill them in, or will it leave a patchy/streak?

You can try it but dark colors don't generally touch up well. You might want to closely inspect the entire wall [with a light] as it's possible that isn't the only spot that didn't get complete coverage.

In the future you want to make sure the wall, air and paint are at a decent temperature.
