when doing bicep curls bring the weight down(negatives) slowly for about 3-4 secs. Try to go heavy enough without comprimising your form, for 4-6 reps. Most importantly EAT high quality foods for building muscle! For me personally especially on shoulders you just need an all out assault on those hard to grow muscles.

i have the same problem w/arms.
i was sitting at a 42" chest and 14.75" arms last yr.
it's been my goal to bring my arms up over the past yr and now they are just over the 16" mark.
i dedicated a day to working primarily arms where before i would work them with chest or back.
i try to completly torch them on that day.
drop sets, heavy negatives, supersets, high reps, low reps, everything all in the same day.
and then take a day off any push, pull or arms excercise the next day to let them recover.
also, i did have to get bigger everywhere for my arms to grow - but proportionally they grew the most.
i feel that big muscle moves like squats, deads and some olympic lifts helped.

My arms grow like crazy, and I attribute that to two factors:
heavy compound movements.
I don't do many curls. The most isolation movements that I do for my biceps on a given week are either: 3 sets of barbell curls or 3 sets of preacher curls followed by 3 sets of concentration curls or incline dumbell curls. I also work bi's a bit with reverse curls and hammer curls.
For triceps I do skull crushers, ez bar overhead extensions 3 sets each. My big tricep movement is close grip bench press.
More than anything arms grow as a result of working my other body parts.
