i'd say you burned the paint. Take it to a paint shop and let them give you an estimate to fix that.

you probably removed the clear coat and burned into the paint. you've got to be careful...especially when using 3m products (their pretty strong). you'll probably have to take into the shop. when i get scratches... 1) wash car thouroughly. 2) dry thoroughly as well. 3) use scratch remover. 4) use polish. 5) wax. that usually makes the small scratches disappear or make them look very minimal.

Hypnotik is an unknown quantity at this point
done that to my car, first big scratch i got, tried to buff it out. used 3M rubbing compound that wasn't clearcoat safe and it ate right through the clearcoat. i haven't gotten it professionally fixed yet, but i just wax that area extra heavy now, ill be getting my car all touched up in the spring.

RedDragon333 will become famous soon enough
The only way to fix it is to take it to a shop. Just be very watchful of that area for the time being and get it fixed asap! Next time be CAREFUL when buffing the clearcoat isnt that thick and its easy to "burn" through it with a buffer.
