It took about 3 days, then it went back into hiding for a couple days and then came out. They like to find a good place for their foot to attach. They don't like it to be exposed to light. Water flow, and light intensity have a lot to do with where they go. It may move around for a little while to find the right place. Even then they may still move again. If its reaching out into the light, then I'd say you're fine. From the pics, it looks good. Sometimes they retain their bubbles and sometimes they loose them. Each nem is different. Mine retained its bubbles even while it was hiding under the rocks, however it did shrivel up like yours. Maybe not as much, but again, every nem is different. Its kinda hard to tell in the first set of pics how much it's shriveled up.
Sometimes they do that when they release waste or "poop". Light does make them open up more and extend their tentacles.
If your water parameters are good, I see no reason to be worried. Just give it time.
Mine nem is just weird. At the moment, it's perched on a power head! When my lights go out it likes to move around and sting all my corals...
That being said, there's a lot of risk involved with owning a nem no matter what you do or how good your water and lights are, so consider yourself warned.
