Not knowing your particular stain personally it depends. If the stain is oil based and the top coat water based and same manufacturer probably ok. If not all bets are off

To be safe, I’d scuff sand with 320, and wipe with DNA or something similar dry and hit with a coat of 1lb or 2lb cut shellac. It will stick to anything and anything will stick to it.

Biggest thing is (IMO) is keep the same MFG of coloring and top coat. Least chance of issues.

I personally, if going to color, prefer dyes (no binders).

Good luck post your final product would love to see it
