Brief Answer:
Negligible risk for HIV. Nothing to worry.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to XXXXXXX
Thanks for posting your query.

First of all, that girl is not necessarily a HIV positive girl.
Even if we assume that she could be a positive woman,HIV risk through the contact of fingers with vaginal fluid is negligible. That too licking your fingers, contaminated with vaginal fluid, then kissing, carries no chance to transmit HIV.
As per CDC,Atlanta, Anal recipient sex, vaginal recipient sex, anal penetrative sex and vaginal penetrative sex were having risk in this order only. (vaginal penetrative sex risk itself is around 5 per 0000 exposures). Oral sex carries a very low risk and all other types of sexual activity carries only a negligible risk for HIV.
Your risk is not through the kissing you had with that girl, but if you have some obvious abrasion in your contaminated fingers then you may likely to have a low risk for HIV.
So there is nothing much to be worried in your case,
Testing for HIV will relieve unnecessary tension after seeing the negative result for HIV.
