I'm still learning myself, but I have had a couple of holding females, and I would say that after all the fry were out, mine returned to a normal appearance in less than a day. If your female still appears to be holding after 2 days, my guess is she did not release all the fry yet. You can wait and see what happens, or you can strip her.

My females have been uncomfortable in a small tank even when alone, and seem to want to pick up the fry that are out.
