I bought the wrong type of paint being an eggshell paint for my kitchen. I am wondering if I can use it still as a base coat then use a semi gloss paint over top. Will this work or should I not do this to begin with?

Yes, you can use the lower sheen paint as a first coat. This is a good way to reduce the coats required as semi-gloss paints don't cover as well as lower sheen paints.
