I got a manicure and was cut. Manicurist touched my cut with bare hands. If she had a bleeding cut that came into contact with mine can I get HIV?

In brief: Only if she has it

Exchanging blood thru skin cuts with an individual who is HIV positive may result in transmission of the infection.
Ask her if you are concerned.
