Let's start out by creating a new file. I used a 900 x 400 pixels canvas set at 72dpi, and I filled my background with a black colour shade.
Now create a new layer set and name it 'Navigation Interface Design'. Then create a new layer and draw a long rectangle with 900 × 26px dimensions and #636363 colour shade.
Under Layer Style(Layer > Layer Style) add an Inner Shadow, Satin and Gradient Overlay blending options to your dark gray rectangle layer.
In a new layer create a curved shape design like you see below, grab the PSD file of the shape here.
Under Layer Style(Layer > Layer Style) add a Drop Shadow, Inner Shadow and Gradient Overlay blending options to the curve shape design layer from step three.
Select the Horizontal Type Tool and set the font family to Arial, regular, 10pt, sharp and white colour shade. In a new text layer type your navigation links on the glossy rectangle.
Under Layer Style(Layer > Layer Style) add a Drop Shadow blending option to your text layer.
Now add a line spacer between each link. In a new layer draw a white and black line next to each other. Then set the layer's opacity level to 29%.
Add a line spacer for the rest of your navigation links.
