Is it proper UX practice to mix tab menus in an application that use icons+text with just text tab items?

Each screen has different menu items. The reason being that I decided to use text+icons for one of the screens is cuz the text would be too long if I used the same styling as another screen with only text. But to add icons to all menu items seemed too much because some don't make sense to be represented by icons.

So if I had bottom tabs on one screen on my application that uses just text menu elements, while another screen I use text+icons, is that alright? Or would I have to keep all tabs the same format for consistency sake?
