Try upping the humidity inside the cage. Get some wet sphagnum moss in there or even a wet/damp towel. The increased moisture in the air should help her complete the shed.

Put her in a container and bring her in the bathroom and then take a long really really really hot shower that humidity will get it off. Then take a q tip and gently rub her skin should do the trick.
