I'm using Tamiya surface primer and Tamiya silver, will it affect the final outcome of the metallic colour if i go over the silver?

I have followed 1:1 practice on my silver paint jobs. Use a basecoat of black under the silver and it will bring out the metallic. I have a can of tamiya silver that actually states must use a black basecoat to work with their silver metallic paint for proper color.

I used gloss black as the top coat with the silver leaf and it looks very clean.
