I don't remember doing regular curls with 'em, only curls while holding it upside-down, grasping the sides, not the handle. I think that's a better way to curl them, especially with a heavy 'bell.
The trick to doing a lateral raise with the kettebell(s) is to keep the wrist straight, not allowing it to bend downward.
