Let's start out by creating a new file. I used a 400x200 pixels canvas set at 72dpi, and I filled my background with a white color. Now create a new layer set and name it 'Glossy Buttons'.
Select the Rectangle Tool and above your screen under the options palette check anti-aliased. Create a new layer and draw a rectangle with 126×27 px dimensions and #B8F416 color shade.
Under Layer Style (Layer > Layer Style) add an Inner Glow and Stroke blending options to your green rectangle layer.
Now draw a skinny rectangle with 134×12 px dimensions and #B8F416 color shade right above your large rectangle.
Under Layer Style (Layer > Layer Style) add an Inner Shadow and Gradient Overlay blending options to your skinny rectangle layer.
Now choose the Horizontal Type Tool and set the font family to Arial, bold, 16 pt, strong and #659000 color shade. In a new text layer type the name of your first glossy button.
Under Layer Style (Layer > Layer Style) add a Gradient Overlay and Stroke blending options to your text layer.
