Wrong nails into bottom plate

Stupid mistake. I built a couple of small walls no load bearing walls in my basement. When tow nailing to the bottom plate (pressure treated), I did not use glavanized nails . Can I just add additional galvanized nails after the fact. Of do I have to remove what is there and start over.

Untreated steel nails are going to rust out in no time when in contact with copper treated wood.
Only use ACQ approved nails.

I wouldn't remove the bright/sinker nails unless it's easy to do so but I would add galvanized nails to insure the studs stay secured.

Thanks everyone for the comments. Will add some galvanized nails. Stupid mistake. Glad I caught it now and not later.
