Allergic to metals - is there a work around?

I can wear platinum, higher grade gold and titanium sometimes. The biggest problem is my belly ring, though I gave the same problem with earrings. Can I do something to surgical steel to open up my jewelry horizons?

I have belly rings with acrylic posts, but they're starting to break down. I have a titanium I can wear some/most of the time. I've decided I need a horrendously tacky ring - but they are mostly surgical steel, which I can't even look at, let alone wear. I've already asked all the sellers - the best/tackiest part is attached to the post.
Is there something I can do to coat surgical steel? Clear nail polish doesn't work at all.
This really is a stupid question, but it could open up earring opportunities too. Thanks!
