You might want to try boiling them for a bit. This is what my mom did when she canned peaches and tomatoes.

Chill whole unpeeled nectarines until semi-frozen--1.5 to 2 hours. Peel with a vegetable peeler.

The best way I have found is to plunge them into boiling water for a second or two. Then into an ice bath.

The peel should split and come off easily.
