Mixing epoxy brands AND varnish ??

I am just a stone's throw away from finishing my Panache ( and I ran out of my System Three epoxy about 2 feet away from finishing the wet out of the inside of the hull. Urgh!
I CAN order more System Three and wait a few more days to get finished, OR I can go buy some West System stuff locally and keep trucking. Any problems mixing the two brands? I still need to put a final coat of epoxy on the whole yak, so West System would have to bond well to the last coat of System Three.

Also, I am using some Epifanes varnish. Any experience with poor bonding of this varnish to System Three OR West System?
