Is it possible to get aids from manicure implements that have come in contact with blood, and have not been properly cleaned?

In brief: Theoretically, yes…

If a sufficient quantity of virus is transferred into an open wound.
If your skin is intact, then highly unlikely. Ask manicurist when instruments were last sterilized. If equivocal answer, refuse the manicure & report to shop manager/owner.
