Actually.. it sometimes depends on the compound.
For example, on Arctic's website, I noticed that previous versions of their compound said to use a baggy or something to cover your fingers while their newest product (arctic 5 silver) says to simply put the amount on the cpu and then use the heatsink to spread it out.

Either way, I would check the directions that either came with the compound or the manufacturer's website.

But Vampire_Slayer's right, don't use your uncovered fingers.

I think I will go with the OCZ one due to the price, and because its modular. Guess I better go order those.
