Depends: If she has HIV and you exposed yourself to her blood in any way there is a risk.The amount would depend on whether any infectious material invaded under your fingernails or entered a scratch. If your nail and finger are healthy the risk would be minor.

Very unlikely unless: you had an open wound on your finger.
