You can do this - but you cannot do it for the same user. If you want to have multiple log-ins active at the same time with different desktop environments, then add a second user for yourself.

When you're logged in as one user, when you lock the screen you can opt to start a new session off (there is a button for it) which will take you to the log-in page. Once the second user is logged in you can switch between the user screens by selecting different terminals (CTRL-ALT-F1, etc.)

There are limitations to this; the new user won't automatically get all your favourites and browser shortcuts, you'd have to add them again.
