HIV from Nail Salon

Hello,

I recently had a scary experience at a nail salon. I was not paying attention when I sat down to get a manicure. I did not notice that the manicurist had big gashes in his hand. They were not bleeding but they were certainly deep cuts. I did not realize this until afterwards. I did not have any cuts on my hands, but he did go through the whole process and cut my cuticles and everything. I am terrified that I could have gotten exposed to HIV. Please help.
