Paint over Lick matt paint?

Sue D
last month

I've been thrilled with the visual effect of my front room in Lick matt Dark Holly Green paint.

However, I didn't realise quite how affected with non-removeable finger marks it would be, and how easily it seems to chip. I don't go round leaning on walls, have no kids, and am therefore rather disappointed.

After some building works in other parts of the house, it will need touching up anyway.

Should I get the painter to paint over it with Little Greene Absolute Matt emulsion - they say you can wipe this down.

I'll ask the painter his opinion when it comes to it - I'm trying to work out which Little Greene shade will be closest match - but has anyone got any views/experiences?
