Hi there,
Thanks for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline/Online with your HIV related questions and concerns. We are happy to help!

This situation you describe is No Risk. The reason is because once HIV is exposed to air, it cannot be transmitted due to damage. So the fingers, once removed from the other girl, would be exposed to air and therefore damaging the virus, before you're exposed to them

I am attaching the HIV transmission equation to make this more simple of what factors are required for risk of HIV transmission to be possible:
HIV TRANSMISSION EQUATION


BODY FLUID
+
ACTIVITY
+
DIRECT ACCESS TO BLOODSTREAM
---------- -------- ----------------------------
• blood (including menstrual) • unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse • vagina
• semen • sharing needles • anus
• pre-cum • mother to child (in specific cases) • urethra in the penis
• rectal secretions • open cuts and sores (in theory)
• vaginal fluids • other mucosal membranes
• breast milk • points of needle injection
Additionally, check out [The Body](thebody.com) for more information!

Hope this helped!

Best,
Christina
