Acclimation can take a while. A couple of days is nothing to worry about, just keep the food available. Here's a few things to try while acclimating:
Cover the sides of the cage so she can't see the "goings on" in the room. Change her food after she's gone to bed for the night. Make sure the temps are correct. Handle her as little as possible. Offer a variety of safe foods for her to choose from, not to forget some dry food. Many say that dry foods can cause dehydration during acclimation, and it can, but it can also stimulate eating by getting that dry food down and turned into energy.
You may find that though you don't notice, she'll start eating while you're not around. For more info on acclimation, check out http://www.deerfernfarms.com/ and http://www.kingsnake.com/uromastyx/.
As for the coloration, depending on the specie and age, I'd bet the coloration will come with maturity. Good luck.
