Can I adjust this box of warm hair color to make it a cooler shade?

I've been using a certain brand and shade of home hair color for a while with good results. Lately I've decided the color is a little too warm for me. I have an unopened box of the now too-warm shade and don't want to waste it. Can make it useable by adding something to make it more neutral/cooler? Details within.

I've been using L'Oreal Feria in this shade
for a long time with very good results. I still like the level of lightening but I need to go a little cooler, I think. Not that the color turns brassy but that it's a little too "golden" to begin with. I'd rather not to waste this box I already had stashed. I suppose could color my hair with it and then use blue Shimmer Lights conditioner every few shampoos to neutralize the gold tones. However if there's a toner or corrector I could add to the color mixture before I dye, that would be great. Any ideas? Thanks, all.
