- So, we're going to create our…little bottle of nail polish.…Now, it really helps to have something…as a reference, a photograph,…or maybe even a real little bottle of nail polish…just to see how light works, how reflections work and so on.…Now, first thing I want to do is I'm gonna…call up my rulers, Command R,…and pull out a guide for myself…right in the center of the whole thing.…Just so I have a place where I can grow from.…I'm going to take away the ruse, we don't need them anymore.…And what I'm going to do is I'm going to create…the bottle top, the actual top of the bottle itself.…
