short answer -- NO.
Only if you had a transaction log that spanned the time between backups
would this even remotely be possible.
I would NEVER consider doing an incremental back up on a database. The
data is only consistent at a given point in time and there would be an
enormous risk of inconsistencies appearing if the restore was done in an
improper sequence (even if it were possible, which AFAIK it is not).
