No but there are times I wouldn't want to use a skin I own because the splash art is UGLY. Like the Sorceress Lux, I had it for a long time and the current splash art is UGLY (I tend to use Spellthief the most, as I find it her best skin by comparison) but I am sooooo glad they are finally replacing the grandma cosplayer art with the gorgeous Chinese art.
Now, if only they replace the current Spectacular Sivir with the Chinese art. Then I'll be extra happy.
the splash is definately an influential factor if i've never seen the skin before, but it's never the sole reason i buy a skin. sometimes i know what the skin looks like ahead of time, sometimes i simply need to complete my collection, , there is a plethora of reasons why i buy skins, and yes, good Splash does play a factor
