A quick button I drew up. Took me 6 layers, but it can definitely be done in less. So, let's see what you've got.
PSD's attached, person who can use the least amount of layers (without flattening everything) gets my collection of kitten pictures. Good luck!

Oooo, can’t pass up a Photoshop challenge ;-)
Exactly how you made it? challenge accepted.
@Prekesh Chavda As long as it looks the same, go nuts.
Done in 1 layer :) http://d.pr/hUoM
3 layers — pill, reflection, background. http://cl.ly/0S430G2w132U382C3D24
@Kubilay Sapayer Somehow all this time I didn't realize I could use a gradient fill on a vector shape in photoshop! You just learned me something awesome!
@Kubilay Sapayer you did exactly what I did, LOL. :)
Started out making the initial gradient, converting it to a pattern and applying that. That definitely felt like cheating because I was just making a bitmap graphic. SO I borrowed some ideas from you guys and used gradient fill.
@Prekesh Chavda we are cool
2(object n reflection) Layers with only 4 blending options: http://db.tt/up5crHms
Not perfect, but it's all I could do on a lunch break: http://jsfiddle.net/cvalleskey/SXrV8/embedded/result/.
Edit: Yes I know you said Photoshop. I don't care. ;)
Does a smart object count as one layer? ;-)
1 layer pill, 2 layers if you count the reflection.
Someone should do it in pure CSS. :)

Nice one, guys! I'll get my kittens directory zipped up now ;)

Pill´s just one layer. Not counting the reflection and background.
