Talking how to get the color of the paint when wet

I've been painting swatches on the walls today and have narrowed it down to 2 colors. However, I realize in both cases I actually love the color of the paint when it's wet as it's too intense when dry. Is there a good ratio or formula to use to get the 'wet paint' color?
thank you for any advice you have!!!

Welcome to the forums

Most paints are darker when they dry so I assume you want a slightly lighter shade to start with.
