The best you're going to get is just a wet-apply protector for the back, like XtremeGuard or InvisibleShield. I personally would love it if Spigen still had their Incredible Shield series and made it for the M8. They had a matte fully body (wet-apply) protector which I used for my Nexus S and Macbook Air...
