Looking for more options for color calibrating my laptop's display

I recently got a Lenovo Thinkpad W530. The display is *very* blue. I wanted to use a custom profile for this computer.

I purchased Pantone's ColorMunki Smile. Setup and usage was easy, and the results give me a better profile: less blue, less red, certainly closer to what I want/need. But ...

It's still not excellent. What I'd *really* like is a program that lets me display white on my display, and adjust that white using color controls, like the "Curves" control in Photoshop, and then, based on my settings, create an .icm or .icc for me to use. That way, I'm creating a profile based on what *I* see, not based on what the ColorMunki hardware sees.

Get it? Is there a way to do this?
Thanks.
