If it happens especially when it is exposed briefly to cold, it might be an indicator of a condition known as Reynaud's Syndrome. See your doctor. It is not terribly serious, but he or she should know about it.

Why does my finger tip go numb all a sudden randomly?

It's a vague question to answer. There are nerves located in your fingers. These nerves stimulate impulses to your brain warning the body of the stimuli it is reacting with (ie. a foreign texture, hot/cold material, general pain). If your finger is not sending impulses (becoming numb) you might have damaged the finger during some type of activity resulting in nerve loss. However, other facts can attribute to numbness in the finger. You would have to be more direct on when the finger goes numb and for how long.
