Help me use my nails as an iPod touch stylus.

I've seen the Nano Nails
product that is supposed to turn your fingernails into a capacative stylus. I like this idea, but they aren't out yet, and anyway I want to do my nails myself! What can I use that's lightweight to attach to my fingernail so that it conducts enough electricity to operate an iPod Touch?

I assume whatever it is has to be touching my skin, but that wouldn't be hard. I want something lighter-weight than Tech Tips
. It also can't scratch the screen, though I'm willing to buy a screen protector in order to make this work.
Do I just have to wait for Nano Nails to come out or buy a Tech Tip or something? Or is there a way to do this?
I'm cool with wrapping something around my finger to do it, but I'm used to manipulating objects with my nails, so I'd prefer that whatever it is be on the tip of my fingernail, not over it like the Tech Tip. If I have to attach it to the top and then wrap a wire around when I want to use it, though, that's okay.
