Yes. Hold the nose with your finger tips and dip only below it (rather than rolling the lube on in a pan). Wearing a latex glove or finger cot makes that easier.

Another technique is to first double-lube with diluted lube, as GP100 man described, then let the second application dry only until it is just tacky. At that point, use a salt shaker to apply motor mica dust to the bullets, then roll them around to get it into the surface. That addition makes them much less tacky to handle. Hornady has used something like bee's wax and motor mica as their lead bullet lube for decades. It works fine.
