try buffing the rest of the car, but with a hood repaint, to not really notice a color difference you would want to blend the fenders as well. But.... if it were me:

I would just paint the rest of the car to match

Sounds like the shop was just lazy and didn't take the time to actually match the paint. I would take it back and make them redo it, unless they wanted to blend and you wouldn't pay for it.

I work at a body shop and there is more to matching paint than pulling the code and mixing up the paint. There are different alternates to all of the colors not to mention getting into tinting on the color to make it match.
