Risk from finger cut

Thank you for answering my last question. I do have one follow-up question though.

Unsterilized manicure tools touched my cuticle wound (not bleeding but very raw and tender). This happened minutes after the tech used them on someone else. There wasn't any visible blood on the tools. However, the tools were stored in a small, hard plastic case that looked like a child's pencil case. I therefore assume that limited air got to the tools. Does this affect the risk of HIV transmission from blood that could have been on the tools, which then touched my finger cut?
